caring for a money tree
A money tree (Pachira) is an easy-to-care-for foliage plant. The leathery leaves are arranged like a hand with five fingers. It prefers a bright sunny position and plenty of humidity. Dry household air can cause the leaves to drop. Set the plant on a tray of pebbles and add water so that moisture is constantly evaporating round the plant. Daily spritzing also helps. You should also check the undersides of the leaves with a magnifying glass to be sure that there are no insects feeding on the leaves. Wash the leaves with a water with a couple of drops of dish detergent in it. I hope your money tree brings good fortune and plenty of money!
