Sprouts of Bristol
Checking local availability

Also known as a Braided Money Tree or Mexican Fortune the Guiana Chestnut is said to bring good Chi to your home. These smaller varieties are a great way to get a money tree without parting with too much of their namesake, and mean you can improve your chi with a plant that fits on a table rather than a 6ft tree!

  • Water when the top inch of soil is dry.
  • If re-poted use well-draining soil.
  • Keep away from drafts
