Braided Money Tree

Braided money trees are known for their growth to manifest money and prosperity. 

  • Light: Thrives in bright filtered light, some soft sun is beneficial but be sure to avoid direct midday sun which can scorch the foliage. Will tolerate lower light, however, will grow at a slower rate.
  • Water: Keep the soil evenly moist as best as possible; avoid prolonged periods of drying out.
  • Humidity: Average to high humidity. 
  • Temperature: Ideal temperatures range from 18°C - 26°C.
  • Soil: A well-draining, slightly moisture retentive organic potting soil is sufficient.
  • Fertilizer: Use a well balanced organic plant fertilizer once a month from Spring through Summer. Click for more on how to Fertilize Houseplants.
  • Repotting: These are fast-growing specimens and whilst young may need regular yearly maintenance, however as they mature they prefer bi-yearly transplantation as they do not like their roots overly disturbed. Repot once growth has slowed or your plant has become rootbound. Choose a planter no larger than 5cm wider than the previous, and plant into a well-draining, aerated mix, consisting of milled bark or perlite for extra drainage. 
  • Propagation: This can be achieved via cuttings. It is best to take your cutting during the morning when temperatures are at their coolest. Select a healthy branch with new growth and snip off about 10 -15cm using a sharp sterilized cutting utensil, making sure you have two to three leaf nodes, as this is where the new roots will shoot from. Pop into some water at a depth of 2cm and change the water regularly. Once a root system of approximately 5 - 6cm has developed, gently pot up your cutting into a well-draining, moisture-retentive mix. Place in a bright warm spot and once new growth has started, your plant is established.
