Pachira aquatica, commonly known as the money tree or the Malabar chestnut, is a tropical plant that is native to Central and South America. It is a popular indoor plant due to its unique braided trunk and beautiful, shiny green leaves.

Here are some care tips for the Pachira aquatica:

  1. Watering: The Pachira aquatica prefers consistently moist soil but does not like to sit in standing water. Water your plant thoroughly and then allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again.

  2. Light: This plant prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate some shade. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.

  3. Temperature: The Pachira aquatica prefers warm temperatures between 60-85°F (16-29°C). It is sensitive to cold drafts and temperatures below 50°F (10°C), so keep it away from doors and windows.

  4. Humidity: This plant prefers high humidity, so misting the leaves or placing a humidifier nearby can be beneficial.

  5. Fertilizer: Fertilize the Pachira aquatica once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

  6. Repotting: The Pachira aquatica likes to be slightly root-bound, so repot only when necessary. Use a well-draining soil mix and a pot with drainage holes.

  7. Pruning: Prune your Pachira aquatica as needed to remove dead or damaged leaves and promote bushier growth.
