    I recently saw some braided stem money trees in Home Depot. There was no botanical name and the leaves were three lobes similar to a schefflera. I'd like to look up the requirements of this plant before I buy one and wondering if any one knows the other name.

    Thanks

    Sounds like you have a Pachira aquatica.

    Thanks Junglekeeper. I looked it up under that Botanical name and that's it. I haven't got one yet but think I'll make a point of getting one soon. The braided stem ones look very interesting and something a little different to grow.

    Thanks again for your speedy reply to my question.
