Light: Position your Money Tree in medium to bright indirect light, turning it every time you water it for even growth and leaf development. This plant will also adapt and do well under fluorescent lights.
Water: Your Money Tree prefers deep but infrequent watering. Water the plant until it runs from the drainage holes. Once water drips from the bottom of the pot, stop watering and empty the saucer. To prevent root rot, make sure your plant is never standing in water. Let the top 2”- 4” of the soil dry out between waterings. Your Money Tree requires less water in the winter months, when growth slows.
