Money tree seeds

This plant also loves fluorescent light and is a common choice for an office plant. Once you place it, avoid frequent relocating because the plant might drop its leaves as a result.

This plant rarely has any issues with diseases and pests, but in some cases, the following problems could occur:


Good drainage and highly nutritious substrate are necessary for this plant; the best choice would be peat moss-based soil. Regular cactus or flower soil will also work. You can add some sand or gravel to assure it drains well. Some popular potting soil on the market has all of these and can be used right away with your Money Tree. Also, use a container with drainage holes. Soggy soil is the most common reason this plant dies, so don’t overpot. Keeping the plant in a smaller pot will also keep it from overgrowing. You can keep your Money Tree in hydroculture if you prefer that.

The most common technique used to breed the Money Tree is through stem cuttings. The best time to do this is in the summer. Make 10-15 cm long cuts and place them in water or soil immediately. If you choose to place it in the water first, until the roots develop, make sure it is at least 2 cm deep. Place the water in a warm and sunny spot.

Common Problems and Pests

Because Money Trees are native to warm South American climates, they can only be grown outdoors in USDA zones 10-12. In other locations, they make ideal houseplants. Money Trees can grow in a range of different soil types, but they do best in well-draining, peaty, loamy soils. If you are planting a Money Tree outdoors, do so in the spring, once evening temperatures are consistently above 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Choose a spot with well-draining soil, indirect sunlight, and protection from strong winds. When planting a Money Tree indoors, select a well-draining container, and place it in a location where it will receive full sun to partial shade.
