Hi everybody, that is the name, I assume, it's on the bottom of the plant. I've never heard of it but i hope someone else has some information on it because i bought it. It was a pricey little guy at 1o.97 however i thought it was different. As always thanks, Lori

Hi, Lori.
Does it look like Pachira aquatica (Money Tree)?

Yes, Josh it looks exactly like Pachira aquatica, however the base of mine is not braided. Do i have to train them to do that, there are 3 base stems that look like if left to grow they might intertwine. Wow, this is interesting

Yeah, they have to be braided, otherwise they'll just grow straight. I like the straight-trunk look, however.
