Shady areas or windows with indirect sunlight keep this plant happy. If the leaves begin to yellow, find a sunnier place. While it can tolerate some full sunlight, too much will burn the leaves.
If grown indoors, pay close attention to the health of your plant and change its location as needed throughout the year. Occasionally turning the plant is a good idea, too.
This tree likes a deep drink of water about once a week. Allow the top two or three inches of soil to dry before the next watering. Make sure there is good drainage so that the roots are not constantly swimming, which leads to rot. It likes humidity as well, like what you’d find in a bathroom. Consider placing the pot on a dish of pebbles and water.
If you find your money tree plant is dying, it may be due to too much watering. It can be really hard to resist grabbing the watering can when the plant drops leaves. This often happens after the initial change of environment, like repotting, so sit on your hands if you must to keep that watering can on the shelf.
As if this weren’t maddening enough, the winter months will mean even less watering as growth slows.
