Scientific Name: Pachira aquatica
Our Chinese Money Tree comes in a 15cm Nursery Pot.
With their slender trunks braided together, the Chinese Money Tree is an eye-catching sight to behold. The slim trunks are topped with bright green palmates. The spoke-like leaf branch has 5-7 unique leaves each and, together, they resemble a small canopy or umbrella.
Hailing from Central and South America, their vibrant tropical look, ease of care and ability to thrive in artificially lit areas, makes the Chinese Money Tree a popular indoor plant choice for many.
It's simple, yet casually cool, and pairs up beautifully with a wide range of pot covers. A sure winner.

Water: Water thoroughly then allow top 3-5cm of soil to dry out between waterings
