Money Trees are a staple houseplant that are believed to bring good luck into your home.  Do not be deceived by the small appearance of these plants. Pachira Aquatica is aspiring to be a whopping 60' feet tall. May this plant bring good fortune to you or someone special. 



Money Tree's will grow beautifully outdoors, but they are not winter hardy and should be brought inside once temperatures dip below 55 degrees. Spring through Fall, keep your Aglaonema in Full Shade and make sure it is not receiving any hot, direct sun. Water once your plant has had a chance to dry out, usually about every 4-6 days with moderate temperatures. You may need to water your Pachira every 2-3 days during periods of extreme heat.
