The shape of the Pachira leaves is one of the reasons why it is referred to as a "money plant" or "money tree." When placed around your home or yard, it can help balance any of the missing feng shui elements, thus creating a more harmonious environment. Since this plant is symbolic of wealth and prosperity, it is a popular addition to both homes and offices.
When scientist eventually examined the plant they made a startling discovery. It contained a new unknown molecule. They called it P57. It turned out to mimic the effect of Glucose, telling the brain that the stomach is satisfied. Only it's about 10,000 faster that glucose. This means hunger is effectively switched off also any thirst is quenched. A truly amazing discover! So like all respectable scientist they quickly sold the right to P57 to a British pharmaceutical company.
If you live in an apartment, this is the plant you want. It will thrive with low light, low humidity, a hot dry atmosphere and drafts. The name comes from the fronds, looking a bit like Christmas holly. Reaching to 60 cm indoors.
With point watering use 1 - 4 gallons per plant, depending on the size of shrub or tree. Repeat the watering if there is no rain. There is no easy way to work out the right time to do this repeat watering. Dig down with a trowel and examine the soil at 3 - 4 inches below the surface. If it's dry, then water. As a general rule watering will probably be required about every 7 days during a period of drought.Plants For Heavy Clay Soils
