Useful to know:
I am from Central and South America. You would also like to know about a Money plant from similar origin - Money Tree - Pachira aquatica.
If you look after me super well I could grow as tall as 1.8m.
As a hardy plant, I can endure anything from full light to shade.
If it's warm, keep me a little moist, but otherwise let me dry out between waterings.
Keep me warm and away from draughts. I shouldn't be in a room lower than about 14 degrees.
Please feed me diluted fertiliser once a month during the growing season.
Prune away any curling leaves and it'll help me make way for new ones.
Keeping the tops of my stems trimmed encourages me to broaden, taking the pressure of my root system and making me sturdier.
I am mildly toxic if eaten so I'm best kept away from pets but I'm not too dangerous.
I am a self-sowing plant so you may find me popping up in my neighbours' planters.
