Find a nice, bright spot for your money tree, out of direct sunlight. 


The Money Tree plant likes water in big gulps so water it thoroughly until water comes out of the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Just make sure that you allow the soil to dry out a bit in between waterings! As growth tends to slow down in the winter time, cut back on water and be sure to always use a container with drainage holes. 

Pot Size

 Keep the pot small! A container too big for the size of your plant will hold in too much water, making the potting mix soggy for longer periods of time. This can cause the stem and roots to rot, forming yellow, dropping leaves.

Humidity and Temperature

 Try to keep the relative humidity 50% or higher. If you have to raise the humidity levels, set the pot on a tray of wet pebbles to raise the humidity around it. Average room temperature that it is comfortable in is 60-75 degrees Fahrenheit. 
If your Money Tree starts to get brown, crispy leaves, this is a sign that your plant is receiving dry air or low light levels. When bringing a new plant to your home, keep it away from heat/AC vents so it can adjust properly to its new environment. If it drops a couple of leaves, don't worry! This is your tree going into relocation shock temporarily. They will grow back with good care if you follow these tips above!
