The Bonsai Money Tree or Pachira aquatica is a striking indoor tree originating from tropical wetlands. Elegant green leaves dangle from its thick bulbous, trunk stem. This easy-care plant is perfect situated on a countertop, table or as an office companion. According to feng shui, it is also said to bring prosperity and good fortune. We've also got a money tree with a braided stem here.

About Bonsai Money Tree

History

Pachira aquatica or money trees are native to tropical Central and South America. They have also become culturally important plants in Asia, where they are held in high regard due to their palmate leaves. They have become increasingly popular in recent years as an indoor tree.

Cultivation

In the wild Pachira aquatica can grow up to 20 metres tall and tend to grow in wetlands and swamps. They have shiny green, palmate leaves (resembling a handshape) and thick roots and stems that hold water. They flower with large yellow petals which turn into oval, brown fruits that contain nuts, which are sometimes used as a cocoa substitute.

Care

Money trees are easy to look after. They love being in a bright room out of direct sunlight. They should be watered thoroughly when the soil has dried out. Mist them regularly or keep them in a bathroom or kitchen, where they will thrive.

Did you know?

The name "money tree" is believed to refer to a story of its origin, in which a poor man prayed for money, found this "odd" plant, took it home as an omen and made money selling plants grown from its seeds.

Toxicity

This plant is non-toxic so although not advised should pose no harm if accidentally chewed or eaten by your furry friends.
