Recovering A ‘Money Tree’

Anonymous added on October 19, 2012 | Answered

I am looking for some help regarding a 'money tree' which has lost most of its leaves. I have had one suggestion, and that is to remove the rest of the branches and leave the main stems (or what seem more like trunks. The tree is about 2. 5 ft tall. ). I don't know if any of it will regrow then. Do you have any suggestions?

Money Tree, or Pachira aquatica needs to be pruned when it gets too tall. If your plant is 2.5 feet tall, prune the stems back to within 1-1.5" of the top of it's braid or twist. New stems will sprout out. You will find more information at the following site:
