Money Tree

Money Tree
The Money Tree, also known as Pachira Aquatica is a beautiful houseplant. Unfortunately like the name suggest, this plant does not produce any money. However it does produce shiny hand-shaped leaves giving any room a tropical feel. In its native environment, a money tree may grow up to 60 feet tall. Generally money trees are kept short and potted with multiple plants, woven into a braid creating a decorative look to your home.
