    thanks for the info!!

    thanks alot junglekeeper , it would have been hard to find out what it was without a little help. now i just have to figure out what this plant likes..they say it lives by the water or in swamps but it also says if you water it like twice a week it will die...conflicting reports...anyone know what the light and watering habits are for this tree?

    thanks in advance
    mike
     
  4. info

    The money tree, I have one as tall as me in my sunroom and I have one smaller (like yours) in another room. My mom has a large one as well in her office and in September I am going to purchase one for my classroom. The reason I am telling you all of this is because it is a very very easy plant to take care of. It likes bright light or medium light. It doesn't care if it is dry or moist. It is not picky. I water my big one every Saturday and it is growing large stems that were touching the ceiling of my sunroom until I but it back. Beautiful plant! You can get them with braided trunks or straight stems. Very cool
