1. Money Tree (Pachira Aquatica)
Size: 6 to 8 feet
Price: $60–80 for a mature plant
What it needs to grow tall: Bright & indirect light, clean leaves, a snug pot
A tropical tree with a unique braided stem, the Money Tree got its name from ancient Chinese folklore, where it was the answer to a poor farmer’s prayers for wealth and success. Today, it’s still considered a great plant for attracting abundance at home in feng shui. Give it bright, indirect light, water it every one to two weeks, be sure to clean off its leaves every so often, and your Money Tree should thrive. Pro tip: Since Money Trees have small root systems, they don’t need a ton of room and will grow better in smaller pots.
