Q. money tree

Bought a money tree…instructions say to put three ice cubes in pot to water it once a week. Doesn’t seem like much water. Read on internet to water more than that. Any ideas if this is correct?

Q. Type of soil for re-potting money tree plant

Is the money plant considered a palm, what type of potting soil should I use when re-potting?

Any commercial houseplant soil will work fine for your Money Tree. These plants aren't all that fussy about soil but do be mindful of the size pot you transplant into. Keep it just a bit larger than the current one - not huge. See notes here: https://www.leafari.com/braided-money-tree-planting-guide.html

Q. Red bug on top of money tree leaves

I have many tiny looking red bugs on the leaves of my money tree. They\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’re covering some leaves but sporadic on others. I don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’t see any on the back of leaves and I see no webs as the definition says should be there. What is this big and what home remedy can I use to kill them?? Also, do they bite humans or do they spread??

Q. Indoor plant

When should a plant be moved into a larger pot? I have a money tree about 17 inches tall and constantly growing. It’s in a 6×6 pot now.

Choose a pot that is 1 or 2 inches larger then the existing pot.

Q. Houseplant

Hi
I have a money tree and two of the five stems that make up the twisted trunk appear dead and have no growth. I have recently turned the plant and the dead stems are the ones that were facing the wall in the corner so may not have had much light. Is there any way to encourage growth from these stems or are they beyond help? Thanks

The best way to tell if an area is still alive is to softly bend the stalk.If it feels alive, then it can grow again. If it is brittle, then that part of the plant is dead. You may want to give it half strength, all-purpose fertilizer to help it recover.

Q. Money tree

My tree has clear sticky drops on the back of the leaves and then after a while they fall off. What do I need to do?

You should spray them with need oil, and try to give it a little more light. This seems like mite damage. I like to use neem oil to get rid of them. Here is an article for more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/spider-mite-control.htm
