Habitat: 55 - 75°F

As one would expect given the environment that they enjoy in the wild this is a houseplant that will thrive in an environment relatively high in humidity. Generally, they enjoy a temperature that varies from 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit but is happy enough at the 55-degree mark.

Maximum Size: 6'

In its wild environment, the Money Tree can reach heights of up to 60 feet, but indoors they will rarely exceed 6 feet. Stick to the temperature guidelines and make sure it enjoys indirect sunlight (avoid cold or excessively warm draughts) and this no-nonsense plant will provide a lovely addition to any home.

Space / Planter Size: Large

A bigger planter is recommended due to the fact that the Braided Money Tree can reach 6 feet in height so it needs room for its root system to flourish.


The popularity of the Braided Money Tree can be traced back to a Taiwanese entrepreneur and horticulturist who perfected the art and science of braiding the Money Tree. The braiding remains during the growth cycles of the tree, and it soon began to attract international attention. It can now be found for sale as saplings at plant nurseries across the globe.

Plant Care

The Braided Money Tree has a lot to offer the homeowner. It combines a hardy nature, attractive and unusual leaves, and flowers and that Feng Shui connection which makes it even more interesting. Give it the right humidity and levels of sunlight and it will grow at a rate of around 24 inches a year - and provide you with a low-maintenance plant that has an enormous amount to offer.

Water: Moderate

Owners are advised to place the planter on top of a pebble-filled tray that is half filled with water. This will increase the humidity around the plant. But owners should take care not to let the roots of the plant become immersed in the tray water - and avoid excessive overwatering. More regular watering should take place during spring and summer - and ensure that the planter is well-drained.

Sun: Bright, Indirect

The Braided Money Tree enjoys direct sunlight outdoors, but as an indoor plant, it should be placed in areas of medium to bright indirect sunlight. It's also worth noting that the Braided Money Tree will be happy enough under fluorescent light should your living space not have an appropriate window.

Care Level: Easy

This is a plant that loves moisture - and that is one of its attractions for homeowners - it is incredibly difficult to kill through overwatering. Regular misting is also recommended - or you can place it near a humidifier.
