Pachira Aquatica, braided is a commonly found houseplant called a money tree. The plant is also known as Malabar chestnut or Saba nut. Money tree plants often have their slender trunks braided together, and are a low maintenance option for artificially lit areas. The plants get their name because the Feng Shui practice believes it will bring luck to the owner of this fun little plant.
One might expect that the symbolism of the money tree goes back centuries. In reality, the first modern Money Tree was cultivated in Taiwan as a bonsai by a truck driver in the 1980s! It quickly became a symbol of prosperity and highly sought after by Feng Shui practitioners
These plants like a moderately humid room and deep but infrequent watering. Water the plants until the water runs from the drainage holes and then let them dry out between watering.
While we can’t guarantee the Money Tree will attract wealth to you, we can guarantee it will add a unique touch to your home or office 🙂
