Money Bonsai Tree – ‘Good Luck Tree’

(pachira aquatica)


General Information – Money Bonsai Tree

Botanical Name: Crassula ovate
Description: The tree is native to southern Africa. It has thick branches and fleshy leaves. Known commonly as jade tree, it can tolerate drought or wet conditions.
Position: The tree needs full summer sun if grown outdoors. Inside, it should be kept on a warm and sunny windowsill. Bonsai money trees should not be exposed to frost.
Watering: Keep watering to a minimum to encourage small leaves. The more water the plant is given, the larger and fleshier the leaves become. Allow the soil to dry out before watering during the winter months.
Feeding: From March to October, feed with a bonsai fertilizer. As an alternative, apply slow-release fertilizer pellets every eight weeks.
Leaf and Branch Pruning: Prune in the spring to desired shape. The tree grows rapidly, so pinch-out regularly. Large trees may require weekly pruning/pinching.
Re-potting & Growing Medium: Re-pot in the spring. When the tree is newly re-potted it should be kept in a warm and shady location, and watered sparingly until it becomes properly established. Use well-draining bonsai soil that contains akadama.
Wiring: Pinching-out and pruning are usually enough to shape the tree. If wiring is to be carried out, do so during the dormant period. Care must be taken to ensure wires do not cut into the branches.
Notes: The people of the Orient believe that growers of the jade tree are granted good fortune.
