The Pachira aquatica (Money tree) is a popular indoor plant. It is an old token of good luck and fortune, related to the concept of Feng Shui. It is virtually kill-proof. They are pretty much immune to the most common cause of black thumbs: over watering. This plant loves water so you don't have to fear any over watering impulse you may have.
How to care for the Pachira aquatica:
• This plant loves moisture but you should never let it stand in water. Good drainage is essential.
• Position this plant in bright indirect light indoors, turning it everytime you water it for even growth and leafing.
• Water this plant consistently. 1 - 2 times per week depending on humidity. Make sure you water all the topsoil, just until the water starts leaking out the drain holes.
• For optimal longevity, lightly fertilise the Pachira 3 - 4 times a year with a water-soluble fertiliser.
