To find out more about the Pachira Aquatica, we would like to tell you a little bit about the background of the Money tree and we also give Pachira care tips, read more about it below:
The Pachira Aquatica is also known as the Watercacao or the money tree. The plant originally comes from the Far East. Here it is believed that the tree can catch money with its leaves. Pachira Aquatica is found in the swamps of Brazil, Costa Rica and Panama. The plant is a member of the Malvaceae family, which is also known as the cheesewort family.
The Pachira Aquatica needs a lot of light. This is only in the form of half-shadow. Direct light will damage the plant. The most ideal place for a Pachira Aquatica is near a north-facing window. Other places are also possible, as long as the Pachira receives 3 to 5 hours of sunlight.
The Pachira Aquatica is a plant that works a little differently than you are used to. It needs a different kind of watering and it is important to water the plant to keep the leaves.
We advise you to water the Pachira Aquatica as soon as the soil dries out slightly. Make sure that Pachira Aquatica gets a good splash of water once every three weeks. The Pachira Aquatica prefers this to a weekly splash of water. This makes the care of these plants different from what you might normally be used to. The Pachira Aquatica stores water in the stem, so the soil should be dried out.
Regular watering does the Pachira Aquatica good. It removes dust from the leaves and any vermin. Especially in the winter period, a room can contain a lot of dry air. It is then necessary to spray the Pachira regularly. Spraying also prevents leaf fall.
When repotting a Pachira Aquatica, it is important to consider the age of the plant. Young plants can be repotted every other year. Older Pachira, from 100 cm, only need a fresh top layer. Of course, older Pachira plants can also be repotted completely. This is best done every two years.
The Pachira Aquatica does not need much extra nutrition. However, after a while the nutrients in the pot will be depleted. These can be supplemented with plant food from Pokon or other brands. It is important that you read the instructions carefully. Too much nutrition can burn the roots of the Pachira.
