Money tree plant, also known as Pachira aquatica, is a popular houseplant or indoor bonsai that has become a symbol of good luck and prosperity in many cultures. Native to tropical wetlands in Central and South America, this plant is a member of the bombax family and can grow up to 60 feet tall in its natural habitat. However, as a houseplant, the Money tree typically grows up to 6 feet tall and has a braided trunk that gives it a unique and interesting appearance.


The Money tree is easy to care for and can thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, including low to bright indirect light. It prefers well-draining soil and should be watered regularly, but not overwatered, as too much water can lead to root rot. It’s important to allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings, and to avoid standing water in the saucer or container.

One of the unique features of the Money tree is its braided trunk, which is created by growing three to five stems together and then twisting them to form a braid. This braided trunk not only adds to the plant’s aesthetic appeal, but also helps it to store water, which allows it to go longer between waterings.


The Money tree plant is also believed to have symbolic and spiritual significance in many cultures. In Feng Shui, it is believed to bring prosperity and good fortune to its owner. The five leaves of the Money tree represent the five elements of Feng Shui – wood, water, earth, metal, and fire – and the plant is often given as a gift to wish someone good luck in their endeavors.


In addition to its symbolic and spiritual significance, the Money tree plant is also valued for its air-purifying properties. It is known to remove toxins such as formaldehyde and benzene from the air, making it a great choice for indoor environments where air quality may be a concern.


Overall, the Money tree is a beautiful and easy-to-care-for houseplant that adds both aesthetic appeal and a touch of good luck to any home or office. With its braided trunk, attractive foliage, and air-purifying properties, it’s no wonder that the Money tree has become such a popular and beloved plant around the world.


Money Trees are an excellent plant for both indoor and outdoor growth. They have lush, bright green leaves and are super hardy. Caring for a bonsai, including the Braided Money Tree, takes time and attention. To keep your plant healthy and thriving, follow some simple tips.


Taking care of a Braided Money Tree is easy – it doesn’t need much water. Once a week is enough for most plants, but some can even go a month with just a cup of water. Spraying some water on the leaves once in a while is also a good idea as it helps keep the plant hydrated and clean.


To keep your Money Tree healthy, it’s important to have the right soil mixture in the pot. A good mixture includes a blend of earth and small gravel pebbles, with drain holes covered by mesh to allow proper water flow while retaining the soil. Adding river rock to the mix helps create pores in the soil to improve drainage. Some bonsai enthusiasts even prefer a mix of peat, vermiculite and perlite.


Give your Money Tree a cozy spot with moderate sunlight. This plant can handle a range of light conditions, but it’ll thrive with a mix of sun and shade. Too much direct sunlight can scorch its leaves, so it’s best to keep it in a spot with bright indirect light. If you’re keeping it outdoors, it’ll love a sunny to partially shaded spot. Just be mindful of the heat and provide some shade during scorching hot days.

In cooler months, remember to bring it inside if temperatures dip below 50°F. This plant is native to a hot and humid environment, so it won’t do well in the cold. For indoor plants, rotate the pot regularly to ensure even growth and leafing. Even if it’s in a low-light area, the Money Tree can still survive for a long time.


Taking care of your Braided Money Tree doesn’t require much fertilizer. In fact, it only needs to be fertilized twice a year, in the spring and fall, with a time-released bonsai fertilizer. To help it thrive, just trim off any dead leaves and make sure it gets plenty of fresh air. With these simple steps, your Money Tree can live a long and healthy life!


To promote growth, regular pruning of the leaves is recommended. Trim away any browning leaves if you want new growth or if your plant is wilting. Pruning can be done at any time of the year and new leaves will soon sprout. The Braided Money Tree is often displayed in a braided or knotted form, which is achieved by shaping the stalks when they are young and pliable. By cutting the stem, you can prune the money tree and eventually new growth will emerge at the cut.


Your Money Tree will be better from re-potting every two to three years, particularly during springtime or when it seems excessively thirsty. Prune the roots gently and provide a soil mix that includes river sand for optimal drainage.


These plants are very robust and any issues are likely the result of excessive watering or prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. If you’re new to bonsai, the Braided Money Tree is an excellent choice as it is beginner-friendly.



You can be confident that your tree will arrive at its destination with sufficient moisture and in a secure package. To maintain moisture and prevent any soil spillage during transportation, the bottom of each tree is covered with plastic wrapping. The trees are connected to the pot with wire, placed inside a double-walled box for protection, and secured with custom packing systems to prevent any movement while in transit.

    She arrived today in perfect condition. Of course she had a limp leaf or two but that’s to be expected. Nothing a little sunshine won’t revive. She came well hydrated and I love her!!

    First time ordering a plant! It came overall in good condition. The plant itself is really cute, and the packaging was great. Plus, the price was just right! Yay!

  7. Miles

    I just received this plant and I must say- I’m impressed! It is a nice large size and in very healthy condition. I love what this plant has done to my living room. It came very well packaged and exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend.

  8. Anthony

    Awesome! The plant arrived in great shape and the packaging was top-notch. Only a few leaves fell off during shipping, but it still looks stunning! Even better than I thought!

  9. Zoe

    The Money Tree arrived promptly and was exactly as depicted in the image, which was a pleasant surprise. It was simple to remove from its packaging and I placed it on a shaded porch to acclimate after being in transit. Currently, it is winter in Florida and the weather is mild, which is perfect for the plant’s recovery. So far, it appears to be thriving!

  10. Barbara Seal (Verified Buyer)

    This was just wonderful!! The delivery was incredibly fast, and the tree arrived looking absolutely healthy! I’m definitely going to be buying more

  11. Victoria

    I had doubts about the quality and height of the plants, but I am thoroughly impressed with this seller. The packaging and shipping were in great condition, just as they were described

  12. Chuck (Verified Buyer)

    Arrived in great shape and was very well-packaged. However, it was taller than advertised

  13. David Mead (Verified Buyer)

    I ordered three plants from this company and I love all of them! They arrived early and were packed tightly and securely. All of the plants were healthy, alive, and very green. The soils were well wet, and they looked great overall. I specifically need a money tree and it’s exactly what I was hoping for!

  14. Daniel Nayeb (Verified Buyer)

    It was a good surprise. I received my plants without any damage during shipping. I didn’t think it was possible! The plants arrived four days after the shipment notice, which was great. They were shipped from US, not from China. Although, a few branches were broken, I recommend inserting some sticks for support during shipping. The soils were well wet, and the plants looked good overall

  15. Roberto Hashemi (Verified Buyer)

    The plant arrived looking good and it’s growing fast. Very well packaged and taller than advertised

  16. Leon Baine (Verified Buyer)

    Taller than pictured

  17. Brian Carlson (Verified Buyer)

    I gave this as a housewarming gift to my friend. She absolutely loved it! This plant doesn’t need a lot of care, and it arrived in a healthy condition, making it the perfect gift for any occasion

  18. Leonardo (Verified Buyer)

    The pot was a different but nice

  19. Shannon Carnley (Verified Buyer)

    Was a day late but it made it. A couple of leaves died after it arrived but none since. Money trees are one of the easiest houseplants we can grow—so they’re perfect for me. During the hottest months of the year, be cautious about exposing them to direct sunlight as it can scorch their leaves. Recommend!

  20. Edward (Verified Buyer)

    I was delighted to open the box and find the plants in great condition

  21. Diana

    Arrived in great conditions with moist soil and well packaged.

  22. Kenya Jones

    This money tree has brought me so much good luck and fortune, and it looks amazing sitting in a well-lit window. The stock photo gives a great idea of what it looked like when it arrived, and it has just flourished and grown so beautifully. I highly recommend it!

  23. Issac

    Good gift
