I still remember the day I stumbled upon my first Plaited Money Tree. I visited my local plant nursery looking to furnish my new new flat (with plants obviously 😬), when I spotted this amazing tree with a braided trunk.  As a lover of all things a little bit different, how could I resist? Little did I know, this tree would become a style icon in my urban jungle and maybe even a lucky charm…

Styling with Ease

One of my absolute favourite things about the Plaited Money Tree is its chameleon-like nature.  My flat had a bohemian vibe, so it got a colourful patterned pot to add some extra whimsy. But when I moved to that sleek new build with all those grey windows (they're the 'in' thing, right?),  a simple white ceramic pot transformed it into a modern marvel! It's like the perfect plant for indecisive decorators like me.

A Forgiving Friend

Life gets hectic, doesn't it?  Between travels and keeping up with the crazy world of houseplants, sometimes my plant watering schedule…well, let's just say it suffers.  That's why I adore my Money Tree.  Those trips exploring far-flung places are amazing, but coming home to a still-thriving Money Tree? Pure guilt-free joy! It's the plant world's way of saying "Don't stress, it happens."


Of course, my furry sidekicks Frank and Tank come first!  Finding out that the Plaited Money Tree is non-toxic was music to my ears. Now I can have a gorgeous, lucky tree AND keep my pets safe  – that's what I call a win-win.  Don't worry, even Buddy the shop dog knows to give this one a wide berth.

A Symbol of Growth

Watching my Plaited Money Tree grow taller with each passing year brings me so much joy. It was just a tiny braided sapling when I found it, and now? It's the star of the show! I prune it with care, just like we nurture our own hopes and dreams.  

The Plaited Money Tree (Pachira Aquatica) isn't just a looker (though those braided trunks are a bit of a showstopper, aren't they?).  It's your good luck charm, an easy-going mate, and a reminder that with a bit of sunshine and care, anyone can flourish. Whether you've been growing plants for years or this is your first go, the Money Tree is one you'll love for ages. And let's face it, who couldn't do with a bit of extra luck?
