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)?


RE: Rainforest Gold 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.
