Money Tree Technical Information :

Common Name: Malabar Chestnut, Guiana Chestnut
Family: Bombacaceae Kunth
Country of Origin: Central America
Description: [syn. Bombax glabra]
A large water-loving mid-sized Central American tree that produces large multiple-seeded round fruit. Edible raw but normally roasted, tasting somewhat like chestnuts. The young leaves and flowers are cooked and used as a vegetable.

Money Tree is botanically known as "Pachira Aquatica" or other common names are Guiana Chestnut, Malabar Chestnut, Saba Nut.
If you think it is born as pot plant, well..not really. It is actually a spreading tree that grows to 60 feet tall in the wide. It has greenish bark and shiny, dark green compound, 8-10 inches leaves. Pachira is native to Central American and Northern South American. In the wild, it is a wetland tree that grows in freshwater swaps associated with tropical estuaries. It often grows alongside rivers, were its branches arch out over the water.

But instead of let them grow very tall. We found that its trunk are flexible enough to be braided together using special technique. Using five young Pachira manually braided together. Put them in the pot and watering them appropriately. After approx 10 months you get what you see in the picture below. An exotic pot plant.

Because of the shinning leave and the braided trunks. People usually call this pot plant "Money Tree" And when you put them in the golden pot. Tie red/golden/silver over it. Make it a nice Pot plant.
Don't worry about it growing too big for you If you still put them in the pot. The trunk will not grow much bigger.

Money Tree is very easy to taken care of. Even though it is an wetland sunshine plant. It still live very well with dryness and low light. So it is an ideal for home or office pot plant. No need to watering them too often, just enough to keep the soil moistured. When the leaves grow too big you just trim them off. The new bud will start popping out a few days later.

And because of these unique appearance, very meaningful name and low maintenance make Pachira or Money Tree very popular. Either as home decorating plant or as well.
