How to care for your Money Tree
Use these instructions to care for a Money Tree. This guide will tell you how to water a Money Tree; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.
Your Money Tree prefers indirect bright light, and can adjust to lower light. Too much direct light will scorch the leaves, but too little light will cause slow growth and yellow leaves. Rotate your plant monthly to keep growth even. If you are worried you don’t have a spot with enough light, try a grow light.
Water your Money Tree when the soil volume is 50-75% dry. Always check the soil moisture before watering. Water thoroughly until you see water flow out of the drainage hole and discard any excess water in the saucer.
Your Money Tree does well in average household humidity. However, if the air is very dry it will appreciate the occasional humidity boost.
Your Money Tree is most comfortable in temperatures between 65-80°F.
Feed once a month in the spring and summer when it is producing new leaves with a general-purpose fertilizer at half strength. Always make sure the soil is damp before applying any fertilizer.
Money Trees are considered non-toxic and pet friendly.
Try not to move your Money Tree very often, since they prefer a consistent environment. If you do need to relocate it, you may see a bit of leaf drop. Not to worry—it will adjust. Prune any discolored leaves as they age with sharp snips.
