To celebrate the launch of our crowdfunding campaign we are bringing you good fortune and joy this month with the fabulous Pachira aquatica a.k.a Money Tree!
This is our Luxury pet-friendly Indoor plant for November 2019. Here are some tips for how to best care for this green beauty.
A native to the tropical regions of Central and South America down as far as northern Brazil.
Light and position in the home
Prefers bright, indirect light. Low light can cause leaves to drop, turn regularly to ensure even light distribution.
Flowers and foliage
The Pachira produces large, shiny green leaves that can quickly fill out its crown. Its flower, which is among the largest tree flowers in the world is eaten by locals along with the leaves.
Watering and humidity
Growing naturally along rivers and swamps, the Pachira enjoys a good watering. Avoid letting the plant sit in standing water though. Your Pachira will enjoy higher humidity.
Room temperatures are ideal, avoid anything lower than 10 degrees Celsius and any warm/cold drafts.
Did you know?
There are many legends that credit the plant with bringing good luck and fortune! It is commonly used as a plant in feng shui due to its five leaved arrangement which represent the five elements.
