Details

According to lore, a poor farmer had such great luck selling hardy Pachira plants—he dubbed them “money trees.” Although that might be a tall tale, the Money Tree’s easy-going nature, fun braided trunk, and pet-friendless make it the perfect addition to any space. Sized to ship best, our large Money Tree arrives with room to grow as it adapts to your home’s conditions.

  • Arrives in 10" diameter grow pot
  • Large plants benefit from brighter light to help retain their mature foliage
  • Large plants require less frequent waterings due to their higher volume of soil

Plant Bio

Pachira is a genus of evergreen tropical trees native to the neotropics. They belong to the family Malvaceae, the cotton and hibiscus family. This plant seems to come to the houseplant world in a fog of mystery. Known by many names — money tree, water chestnut, guinea nut, and so many more — this plant seems to have found its way into every plant shop around. Like any plant that’s bred for commercial or ornamental purposes, one of the key features of a wanted plant is a plant that is prolific, easy to grow, and tolerant of varying conditions. These plants are actually quite weedy in the tropics, often being grown as erosion-control trees.
