Money Tree

Enjoy this classic Money Tree as an ornamental feature in your home all through the year.

A classic favourite, low maintenance Crassula ovata, also known as the Money Tree, have been a popular choice of houseplant for years. These woody succulents require very little in terms of effort to keep them healthy and lush, rewarding minimal care with year-round greenery for many years. Money Trees love to bask in a sunny part of your home. Their succulent, chunky, fleshy leaves are adapted to retain water in hot climates, meaning they actually quite like to dry out from time to time - perfect if you're often away from home or don't always remember to water your houseplants! Lasting for many years, they eventually form a compact tree-like structure with woody branches which makes for an attractive, architectural living feature in your home.

If you want an easy to grow houseplant to act as a year-round feature in your home, you can't go far wrong with Crassula ovata!

Plant Care & Advice

Money Trees do best in well-lit part of the home and can tolerate direct sunlight. They can be positioned on windowsills or in a bright, warm room. Over the years they branch out with woody stems, the root system also grows and will need repotting occasionally into a slightly larger pot each time, using multipurpose or houseplant compost.

Water them regularly during the summer months when in growth, although they cope well with drought and would prefer to be dry than too wet. Poke your finger into the compost and if it feels dry give it some water, allowing the water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. During winter, it will need very little water.

For best results, feed two to three times during spring and summer using a houseplant fertiliser. Before feeding, ensure the compost is already slightly moist with water otherwise that feed could burn the roots.

These plants don't require pruning unless any branches die off, in which case these can be removed with a sharp pair of secateurs.
