PACHIRA INSIGNIS
Money Tree


Pachiras are some of the easiest plants to grow.
They will grow from full sun to full shade, even indoors.
They can handle quite a bit of water and can also handle some dryness. Pests and diseases also don't seem to affect them. Perhaps the only thing that should be avoided is temperatures bellow freezing even though they will tolerate them for short periods of time.
The bottom line is Pachiras require average care from water to fertilizer.
Today we find Pachiras sold in 2 different forms.
-One in which several plants are planted in a single pot and their trunks are braided. They are meant to be grown potted and are often used as in indoor plant.
-Another way is for landscape use. In this case there is only 1 plant per pot and the Pachira will develop into a full grown tree. When mature, Pachiras provide very dense shade and will produce beautiful white flowers.
