Plant Care Guide for Money Tree 'Guiana Chestnut' Pachira Braid:

  1. Light Requirements: Place your Money Tree 'Guiana Chestnut' in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight but should be protected from harsh, afternoon sun. Proper lighting ensures healthy growth and vibrant foliage.

  2. Watering: Allow the top inch or two of soil to dry out between waterings. Water thoroughly when you do water, but ensure that the pot has good drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

  3. Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a room temperature between 65-75°F (18-24°C). The Money Tree is relatively adaptable to humidity levels but benefits from moderate humidity. Regular misting can help create an optimal environment.

  4. Soil and Fertilization: Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix. Fertilize your Money Tree 'Guiana Chestnut' with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

  5. Pruning and Maintenance: Trim any yellowing or dead leaves to promote new growth and maintain its attractive appearance. Occasionally, gently dust the leaves to keep them clean and allow for better photosynthesis.

  6. Toxicity: The Money Tree is non-toxic to pets and humans, making it safe for households with pets and children.

  7. Pests: While relatively pest-resistant, occasional mealybugs or spider mites may appear. Use our Damn Bug! Organic Pesticide to treat and prevent any pest issues.
