Houseband's musings

Houseband’s Money Tree –

Pachira aquatica – this is the scientific name of my money tree.

My money tree

I have been quite excited after I received my money tree and immediately launched a search (on the net) on how to take care, grow and culture the plant.

I have here a picture of my money tree, and hopefully, I can propagate this and make more money trees. Well, we don’t know, maybe in the future I can make a business out of it, selling money trees, or bonsai money trees.

I have read that this plant actually comes from Central and South America, and it can really grow tall like 18 meters. It loves sunlight and needs less watering. It can also bear fruits, in a form of nuts, which they say tastes like peanuts, some people also make a flour out of the nuts.

As for me, I will stick to eating the nuts rather than eating any baked goodies from the produced flour.

I am rather curious now, what if I make a Pachira orchard and later on, will be the prime producer of the pachira nuts, and make candies out of it, just like in the case of the Pili nuts.

As I have said, this is an idea, and believing it will definitely make the idea into a reality.

    Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in

    • hi Arntr, thanks for reading and commenting. You mean, making a business out of it? yeah, that is really a good idea. There are not a lot of selling this plant, i guess… goodluck on yours, too! =D
