Money Tree Growing InstructionsNo matter which way your money tree is shaped when you get it, the plant does best in a bright spot and regular watering. This is a good houseplant if you tend to overwater plants, as it appreciates (but doesn't need) constantly moist soil. Being a tropical, money tree also appreciates abundant humidity. If the leaves start to have brown, crispy edges, placing it with other plants or near a small humidifier can help.
You can prune money tree at any time.
Fertilize money tree no less than two times a year with a regular houseplant fertilizer. You can fertilize it more frequently if you want it to grow faster. Make sure to follow the directions on the fertilizer package, though, to avoid overfertilization.
