Money Plant Caring Guide: Growing information + Tips

Money Plant care is easy and simple. Like Jade, Many people enjoy growing money plants in their homes and offices, and they are considered to be symbols of good luck.

Watering a Money Plant

  • Please pour 100-150 ml water in 2-3 days in the pots of height range 4 to 6 inches. These include normal pots, Hexa pots, and medium ceramic and colorista planters.
  • Add 50-60 ml water in 2-3 days in smaller ceramic pots, smiley cups, or iris planters, which are less than 4 inches in height.
  • Water only when the topsoil feels dry, you can touch the soil with your finger and check. For those who are looking for watering perfectly, dry topsoil signifies the money plant is ready to get watered. Let plants dry out only in the top two inches of soil before irrigating. If the plant dries out to the roots, growth will retard and the overall health of the plant will suffer.
  • Don’t over water money plant. The over watering can cause root rot.

Sunlight Requirements of a Money Plant

  • Money trees prefer bright, indirect light and moderate-to-high humidity.
  • Direct sunlight can lead to leaf-scorching, but the plants can do relatively well in low light.
  • If placing the plant in a window, rotate it regularly to get even light exposure.

Fertilizing Your Money Plant

  • Feed the plants with organic manure once in 6 months, when using Rolling Nature potting mix.
  • For normal soil feed bi-monthly, with any balanced houseplant organic manure.

Pruning

No pruning is required, but it can be done to shape or control the size of your plant. Cut back to a leaf that is about 2 inches from the base of the plant, to keep new growth coming in. Remove yellow leaves that are aging.

Re-Potting

If the money plant has robust growth, and it seems to outgrow the pot, it is time to re-pot. After a year you can re-pot in a container 1 or 2 sizes larger, with fresh soil and manure. It helps to trim the plant back at this time also.
