Starbright Plant/Flower Care Guide

Money Tree

Money Tree
Light Icon


Bright light, but no direct sun. Thrives under fluorescent light.

Water Icon


Money tree plant likes water in big gulps. Water thoroughly, until water comes out the drainage holes in the bottom of the pot, then allow the top 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) to dry out between waterings. Avoid getting water on the trunk, which causes stem rot. Water less in winter.


Moderate to high. Try to keep the relative humidity at 50% or higher. Set the pot on a tray of wet pebbles to raise the humidity around it.

Temperature Icon


Average room temperatures 60-75°F/16-24°C

Soil Icon


Use a peat moss-based potting mix with perlite or sand added for good drainage.

Fertilizer Icon


Feed every 2 weeks in spring and summer with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half.

Propagation Icon


Seeds or stem tips. Take stem tip cuttings in spring, with at least 2 leaf nodes attached. Dip the cut end in rooting hormone powder then place it in moist potting mix. Be patient -- it can take several weeks to root.
