Pachira Aquatica, also known as Money Tree, is a popular houseplant known for its lush leaves and thick trunk. It is relatively easy to care for, making it a great choice for beginner plant parents. Here's a care guide:

  1. Light: Pachira Aquatica prefers bright, indirect light but can also tolerate low light conditions. Too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Water thoroughly and then allow the top 1-2 inches of the soil to dry out between waterings. The exact frequency will depend on the time of year and your home's specific conditions, but generally, it's about once a week in summer and every two weeks in winter.

  3. Temperature: The Money Tree prefers room temperature, around 60-75°F (15-24°C). It doesn't like cold drafts or temperatures below 50°F (10°C).

  4. Humidity: Pachira Aquatica is tolerant of a wide range of humidity levels but it appreciates higher humidity. If your home is dry, particularly in the winter, consider using a pebble tray or a humidifier to increase humidity.

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix, ideally a peat-based mix. You could also use a mix designed for cacti and succulents, which ensures good drainage.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed the Money Tree with a diluted balanced liquid fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Do not feed in the fall and winter.

  7. Repotting: Repot your Money Tree every 2-3 years, or when it becomes root-bound. This is typically signaled by slowed growth or water running straight through the pot.

  8. Pruning: Pruning can be done to control the size and shape of the tree. If it's getting too tall, you can cut the stem back by half.

  9. Propagation: Propagation is typically done through cuttings or air layering. Spring and early summer is the best time to do this.

  10. Pests and Problems: Pachira Aquatica can occasionally suffer from pests like spider mites, aphids, and scale. If you see signs of these, treat the plant with an insecticidal soap or neem oil.

Overall, the Pachira Aquatica is a low-maintenance plant that can add a touch of greenery and elegance to any space. Be mindful of its water and light requirements, and it should thrive in your care.

    Tropical Glasshouse Nursery: Our plants are nurtured in our tropical glasshouse nursery located in Lincolnshire, where we maintain an average temperature of 16°C. We do not use cold warehouses, ensuring optimal conditions for plant health.

    Plastic Nursery Pots: All our plants are supplied in practical plastic nursery pots. If you prefer a more decorative option, we offer a range of stylish pots available for purchase separately.

    Non-Consumable: Please note that our plants are intended for ornamental purposes only unless specifically stated as edible. Ensure you check product descriptions carefully if you are looking for edible varieties.

    Variable Heights: The height of our plants can vary by approximately +/- 10%. This natural fluctuation ensures you receive a unique and healthy specimen.

    Plant Pot Sizes: Pot sizes may vary by approximately +/- 1cm. To ensure a proper fit, we recommend selecting a decorative pot that is 1-2cm larger than the stated plant pot size. For instance, if you purchase a plant in a 17cm pot, a 18 - 19cm decorative pot would be ideal.

    Quarantining: All our houseplants are regularly sprayed with a preventative systemic bug treatment. We do our best to ensure a bug free growing environment however sometimes these can unfortunately be missed, as such we always recommend quarantining plants when they first enter your home and checking them upon arrival for bugs.
