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

After some water a beautiful plant.

When my daughter opened her gifted money tree plant, the plant leaves appeared weeping as if it needed water. Some leaves had fallen off, looked sad, but after some water and the following morning it perked back up.

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.

Are Money Trees pet-friendly?
