Additional information
Pachira is an easy care plant (while foliage is still fragile). Even when the plant is in rest period (during wintertime), keep the plant in more diffuse light circumstances. In wintertime less water and feeding is preferred.
Height 35-40cm and width 25-30cm
Care instructions
Cut off a few of the larger leaves from the bottom of a Money Tree Plant each month to encourage new growth at the top. Pinch back the growing tips at the ends of branches to keep the plant small.
Colour of foliage
Planting instructions
Keeping a Money Tree in a small pot controls its size and is essential when growing a Pachira aquatica as a bonsai plant. If you want a taller and larger plant, repot as soon as the roots have filled the existing container.
Rate of growth
Soil type
Use a quick draining potting soil. If the soil is too heavy, add sand to the mix to help it drain faster.
Watering instructions
Water well and then allow the top 1"- 2" of soil to dry out before watering again. A Pachira aquatica requires less water during the winter months when resting. Be sure to use a container with bottom drip holes to prevent over- watering and root rot. It's important to water the soil evenly.
