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 for a fabulous accent piece. A sure winner.

Please note: These plants are not known to be toxic.

Follow these instructions to keep your Chinese Money Tree healthy and happy.

Light: Place in bright, indirect light but avoid direct sunlight as this can scorch the foliage
