Money Tree Bio
Though native to Mexico and South America, Money Tree rose to fame in East Asia, where it is cultivated as one of the luckiest ornaments, symbolizing prosperity. Its trunk is believed to hold within its folds good fortune, and its palmate leaves resemble open hands offering great abundance. Despite its outstanding appearance and symbolic meaning, this evergreen is very easy to care for, and makes for a great indoor plant.
Light Instructions
Money Tree grows best in a space with bright direct light, where the sunlight streams inside directly, and can also adapt to spaces with bright indirect light, where the sun rays are diffused. Avoid placing it in spaces with low light or spaces without natural sunlight.

Money Tree Care

On your Money Trees’s first few days at home, it may lose several leaves, or leaves will turn yellow. This is no reason for concern. Simple shake off or cut the leaf, and look forward to new and better adjusted leaves to grow. For best adjustment, avoid moving the pot around the house too much, and allow it to adjust to one spot. To help it grow optimally and evenly, occasionally dust the leaves and rotate the pot by a ¼ turn once a month. To maintain its aesthetic shape and height, you may periodically prune it to your liking.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are other common names for Money Trees?
The money tree, as the folktale goes, received its name when a poor man prayed for prosperity and encountered the money tree instead. While he didn’t stumble upon a pot of gold, he did find a fortune selling the tree’s seeds. Among the other common money tree names: * Pachira aquatica. In the Guyanese language, essentially meaning “sweet water nut,” this is the scientific name for the tree. * Malabar chestnut. Malabar is a region in southwestern India, where money trees are fairly common, and the trees produce edible seeds that taste like nuts. * Guiana chestnut. Guiana is a variation of Guyana, while “chestnut” again refers to the edible seeds found in a pod from the money tree. The Guianas refers to a broader region of South America on the north-central coast. * Provision tree. This name likely surfaced thanks to the triad of “provisions” the tree produces: fruit, the nut-like seeds, and edible flowers. While the money tree might sometimes be referred to as a money plant, it should not be confused with its sibling plants, the crassula ovata and the pilea peperomioides (commonly known as the Chinese money plant).
Where should I place a money tree in my house?

For ideal light, seek spaces with bright, indirect sunlight where it can soak up the sun for at least six hours. For the best feng shui, place your money tree in the southeast corner of the home and avoid placing it in a bathroom. Otherwise, consider putting it in your “wealth corner,” which is considered the far-left corner from the entrance of a room. More broadly, these are popular plants in a workspace as a constant reminder of — you guessed it — money.
