Known for good luck, Money Trees are popular indoor plants believed to bring good luck and good fortune to the person who receives them as a gift. This small, tree-like plant features a braided trunk and large leaves, and it's guaranteed to add feng shui to any space.

Botanically referenced as 'Pachira Aquatica,' the Money Tree plant creates positive energy, or chi, and is commonly found in storefronts and businesses. Its braided trunk brings an ornamental value to this plant.

Ideal care for Money Tree plants includes bright indirect sunlight and a well-draining potting mix. The Money Tree prefers less attention than many houseplants and it is best to allow the soil to dry out some between waterings. We also recommend that you pot your tree in a pot with drainage holes to avoid issues of root rot.

The Pachira Aquatica is a fun, unique addition to indoor spaces and adds an element of style and natural beauty to a home. This ASPCA-certified pet-friendly plant is also known to clean air and can help purify the air in your home.

The Money Tree plant is loved by bonsai enthusiasts, as it already follows the form and can handle being root bound in a small container. The hand-shaped leaves have five sections and are said to symbolize the elements of creation: metal, fire, water, wood, and earth. Native to South America, this tropical tree is grown for its edible nuts.
