Regular price

SUN

Money Trees prefer medium to bright, indirect light. They’re also adaptable to low and fluorescent lighting but will experience slower growth.

WATER

Water well once the top 50%-75% of soil has dried, allowing all excess to flow from the drainage hole. Reduce frequency through fall and winter. Use of non-tap water is recommended.

AIR

Mimic a tropical environment with temperatures between 65º-85º and a high moisture content. You can provide a regular boost of humidity by:


  • Adding a humidifier nearby
  • Creating a pebble tray that lives underneath the pot
  • Misting the leaves 2-4x per week with non-tap water

PET FRIENDLY

Keep out of reach from curious pets. These are toxic when ingested. 

AESTHETIC

Money Trees are native to tropical regions of western Asia and southeast Europe. They typically have multiple trunks braided together when they’re very young and continue to grow this way. Each trunk grows fanning leaves in clusters of five or more, creating a canopy effect over the thick green and brown trunk below. Over their life span of 10+ years, they can grow up to 6 feet, provided supreme indoor conditions. 

HEALTH BENEFITS

Active exposure to and care for plants has many proven wellbeing benefits, such as: 


  • Lower stress levels
  • Improved mood
  • Superior mental clarity and focus

The Money Tree removes many toxic chemicals from our air, including ​​trichloroethylene, benzene, and carbon dioxide. We’re able to breathe and sleep better air thanks to the oxygen it gives us. Dust the leaves regularly for optimal photosynthesis and shine. 

SPIRITUAL INTERPRETATIONS

Just as their name suggests, the Money Tree has long symbolized prosperity, wealth, and good luck. Consider placing it in the southeast or far left corner of your home to attract wealth, following ancient Feng Shui practices. It is said that a trunk growing a 7-leaf cluster is incredibly lucky. Money Trees are considered a Bonsai Tree, believed to attract joyful and positive energy in your space.

OUR RECS

We recommend a sturdy clay or ceramic planter with a drainage hole to provide ideal moisture balance and airflow for the Money Tree. When repotting, use a planter of the same size or no more than 2 inches larger.  


Ideal soil is a well-draining mix with aerating and moisture-retaining amendments such as perlite, coco coir, and/or sand. 


Nature is unique - each plant may vary slightly from the plant pictured. Ceramic planters are not included.
