Product Information

If you’re looking for a striking and yet undemanding houseplant, then Pachira aquatica is the plant for you.

With gorgeous twining stems and luxurious, palmate leaves, this is an exotic-looking plant that will be the talking point of your home.

Also known as the money tree, guiana chestnut or the saba nut, Pachira is a native of Central and Southern America, and thrives near wetlands and swamps hence its name 'aquatica'.

It loves soil that is moist at all times, so it's virtually indestructible and as it also thrives in indirect light, so growing it indoors is a piece of cake.

Preferring a warm, light position, a little shade is also well tolerated by this sturdy houseplant and it requires very little maintenance - just position it in the brightest area of your home and leave it to do its thing.

Presented in a 13cm zinc pot and approx 50-60cm tall including pot, this easy-care houseplant is perfect for instant impact and multiple selfies.

Supplied in a 13cm zinc pot - see ‘as supplied’ photo.

Top Tips

Turn your plant every time you water it for even growth and leaf formation.

Care Information

Pachira aquatica needs to be watered - allow it to dry out a little between waterings then give it a generous dousing until the water begins to drain from the pot. If you occasionally add a little water-soluble feed from spring through to early summer, Pachira will love it. A high humidity is also appreciated, so spray the plant regularly, especially if kept in a centrally-heated house.

During the winter, place Pachira in a cooler room, and carry out any routine pruning needed:

Snip back stems just in front of a leaf or node to remove length. Cut no more than 1/3 of a stem and snip it at a 45-degree angle to promote new growth.

Trim back the top stems to prevent your tree from growing too tall - keeping it pruned low to the twisted trunk will help control its size.

Snip off any new stems that form at the base of the twisted trunk. Snip off close to the trunk, but not flush.
