Hi everyone,
My boyfriend and I just inherited some plants from a neighbour who was moving out. However we don't know what there are or how to take care of them. Could you help?
Thanks so much,

RE: What is this plant and how do you take care of it?

Hello again. This one looks to me like Pachira aquatica, aka "money tree." Once again, I haven't grown this, but I hear that these guys can take a bit more water than other houseplants.

Do note though, that overwatering is probably the #1 killer of houseplants among houseplant noobs, so proceed with caution.
