Type: Plastic Nursery Pot

Light: Money Trees thrive in bright, indirect sunlight. They can tolerate some direct sunlight but prefer diffused or filtered light. Place your Money Tree near a north or east-facing window to provide the right amount of light. Rotate the plant occasionally to ensure even growth.
Temperature: Maintain a warm environment with temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid exposing the plant to cold drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations.
Watering: Allow the top 2 inches (5 cm) of the soil to dry out before watering. Water thoroughly, ensuring that excess water drains from the pot. Empty the saucer beneath the pot to prevent waterlogged soil, which can lead to root rot. Reduce watering during the winter months when the plant's growth slows.
Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix. A mix designed for tropical plants or a blend of potting soil, perlite, and peat moss works well.
Pot: Choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent waterlogged soil. Money Trees are known to grow well in slightly crowded conditions, so there's no need to repot frequently.
Fertilization: Feed your Money Tree with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the dormant season (fall and winter).
Pruning: Trim or prune your Money Tree as needed to maintain its desired shape. Remove dead or yellowing leaves to encourage healthy growth.
Support: If your Money Tree grows tall and becomes top-heavy, consider using stakes or bamboo supports to help maintain an upright form.
Pests: Keep an eye out for common indoor plant pests like spider mites or mealybugs. Inspect your plant regularly and treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
