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.
