Plant Origins

Neotropics (Tropical Americas)

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. As is typical in horticulture, poor records are kept, so no one really knows when this plant came into commercialization. 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.

Happiness grows on trees.
