Light and Temperature

Pachira Aquatica is a tropical plant so it can tolerate just about any temperatures above freezing. Above 100°F growth will slow a bit but the plant will not be harmed. On the low side brief freezing will do some damage but no serious harm will come until 27°F-28°F for more than a few days.

As a tropical plant the money tree needs quite a bit of light but may get sunburned during the summer if left in full sun. They will also do just fine in up to full shade if kept outdoors.


The Money Tree likes just a small amount of water at a time, keep the soil slightly moist by watering about once a week. Also misting every few days is a great way to care for some houseplants like this one.
