Care Guide

Braided Money Trees have delicate foliage, but are incredibly fast growers. Don't be shy about pruning leaves from your Braided Money Tree- it will push out new growth before you know it. Originating in rainforest climates, Braided Money Trees also like to be misted for added humidity

More information can be found in the Braided Money Tree.

Beautiful plant, beautifully packaged

Ordered the medium size money tree to celebrate the end of one phase of a project and the beginning of another. It’s a wonderful source of inspiration on my desktop.

Love the money tree - he was a gift. I received cool black packaging, like a VIP invitation, and opened to find a gift card. I was able to choose the plant and vessel. Plant arrived in a few days. Followed the instructions and the money tree is happy and doing well. Love this site!

The plant and the white pot are gorgeous! The plant is fresh with new leaves growing. It looks beautiful in my dining room. I also have the large Snake Plant that I bought recently and that is perfect in my living room in the mid century modern pot. I’m a big fan of your product too after receiving the recommendation from my Son who is filling his home with your plants too.

Both of my plants had delivery delays of several by UPS but surprisingly both plants were in perfect condition when they arrived. The way you package the plants is amazing. I was also impressed that I got an email from L & G to alert me of the delay and to reassure me that the plant would be healthy when it arrived. Well done, everything from your website, ease of ordering, quality of the product and customer service are first class.

Featured Questions

Can Braided Money Trees be grown outdoors?

Braided Money Trees (Pachira aquatica) are tropical plants typically grown as houseplants. They prefer warm temperatures, high humidity, and indirect sunlight, which are challenging to replicate outdoors in many regions.

However, in regions with a warm and humid climate, the Braided Money Tree can be grown outdoors in a protected area, such as a covered patio, where it can be protected from frost and strong winds. It can also be grown in a greenhouse where the temperature and humidity can be controlled to suit the plant's needs. If you plan to grow your Braided Money Tree outdoors, it is important to keep in mind that the plant may require more frequent watering and protection from the elements.

It is important to note that it may not survive cold temperatures when grown outdoors.
