Also known as the money tree, guiana chestnut, or the saba nut, Pachira aquatica is native to the tropics and thrives near wetlands and swamps. It loves moist soil; hence, the kill-proof factor. It also does well in indirect light, so growing it indoors is no problem—just position it in a fairly sunny spot.


How to Care For Pachira Aquatica:

  • This tree loves moisture, but you still should never let it stand in water. Therefore, keeping it in a planter with good drainage is essential.
  • Position it in indirect light indoors, turning it every time you water it for even growth and leafing.
  • Be sure to water consistently, ideally 1 – 2 times per week depending on humidity. Water all the topsoil, just until the water starts leaking out the drain holes.
  • For optimal longevity, lightly fertilize the Pachira aquatica 3 – 4 times a year with a water-soluble fertilizer. I use an easy one that you scatter on the topsoil that gradually dissolves with each watering.
