With a braided trunk and lush, glossy leaves, the Chinese Money Tree plant has become incredibly popular. Not only does it add a touch of vitality to any home, but it is also said to bring luck and wealth. While we can't guarantee that the Chinese Money Tree will attract wealth to you, we can guarantee that it will add a unique and beautiful touch to your home or office.

Getting to Know the Chinese Money Tree

The Chinese Money Tree, scientifically known as Pachira aquatica, is actually a combination of multiple trees braided together during growth. This broadleaf evergreen is native to Central and South America and goes by various common names, including Good Luck Tree, Malabar chestnut, Guiana Chestnut, and French Peanut. In the wild, Chinese Money Trees can grow up to an impressive 60 feet tall. However, a braided Money Tree plant usually ranges from one to eight feet in height.

Contrary to what one might expect, the symbolism of the money tree actually dates back only a few decades. The first modern Money Tree was cultivated in Taiwan as a bonsai by a truck driver in the 1980s. Since then, it has quickly become a symbol of prosperity and is highly sought after by Feng Shui practitioners. Nowadays, Money Trees are available in various forms, including smaller Mini Money Trees, larger Money Trees, and even multiple Money Tree plants grown together in the same pot, known as the Money Tree Forest.

Symbolism and Feng Shui of The Money Tree

The cultivation of the Money Tree has given rise to a beautiful legend: a man who was down on his luck prayed for prosperity and stumbled upon the money tree. He took it home and soon discovered that he could cultivate more trees from its seeds. This led him to start a business selling these beautiful trees, and he made his fortune. This is why the Money Tree has become a popular gift in East Asian culture, both in business and personal affairs.

In Feng Shui, there are several plants that promote abundance, but the Money Tree holds a special place. The braided trunk of the Chinese Money Tree is believed to trap fortune within its folds. The five leaves that typically grow on a stalk are said to represent the five elements of balance: earth, fire, water, wind, and metal. Finding a stalk with seven leaves is incredibly rare and is considered to bring immense luck to the owner.

When it comes to placement, many businesses keep a Mini Money Tree near their cash register for good fortune. Within the home, the most common placement to promote wealth is in the southeast corner.

Money Trees Help Refresh Your Home

Apart from being a symbol of luck, Money Trees are incredibly easy to care for. They thrive in indirect light and require infrequent watering, making them the perfect low-maintenance plant for beginners. Additionally, the Chinese Money Tree is highly rated as an air purifier. It has been included in a famous NASA study on indoor plants that shows its effectiveness in filtering harmful pollutants.

Moreover, Money Trees are pet-friendly and have received ASPCA certification for being non-toxic to pets. However, it is important to note that consuming large volumes of the plant can cause digestive upset in animals.
