How to Grow and care for a For a Money Tree Plant

Money tree (Jade) is one plant I like growing too because it is easy to grow and needs very little care but it gives me pleasure especially when it starts to flower.

The money tree I have has flowered maybe four times now. The colour of the flower is pinkish white. Admittedly, the flowers bloom only once in a year but it's worth waiting for. Ah it's beautiful to look at. It took a while before it produced its lovely flowers but it is so amazing to look at. I did not even know money plant can flower but it did. One day it might bring me money too.

Here is how to grow Money Tree (Jade) plant:


1. Prepare a pot with multipurpose compost.

2.Take a cutting or a leaf from an existing Money Tree Plant and stick it on the pot with compost.

3.You can even grow from just one leaf or three, just dip half of each leaf in the pot with compost and watch it grow.

4.Then just water it once a week, but don't over water it.

5.It needs feeding with baby bio once in a while.

Jade-Symbol of Money

Money Tree– once it's established just needs water and baby bio liquid fertiliser (that's what I use for my indoor plants) now and again. Just make sure you don't over water them, they don't want much to drink. So easy to grow and look after. It looks after itself really once you put it in the pot with compost. If it outgrows it's pot then it is time to put it in a bigger pot. Sometimes you have to be careful because the leaves and branches are quite heavy so it is better to take off some of it. What I did with mine, I cut off some branches and planted it to another pot and it grew so I gave it to my neighbour.

      So did I vespawoolf, I did not know until it did flower after maybe 4 or 5 years since I had it. I had this plant maybe 15 or more years. I just love it when it flowers. It is so beautiful even without flowers. Thanks for your kind comment.

      This Jade plant is one of the longest plant I have in my house, maybe about eighteen years old. What I like about it is that it just needs water once a week and sometimes need Baby bio or any liquid fertiliser. It's so easy to look after. Thanks once again travmaj for your lovely comment.

      I have one of these Jade plants, but it has never bloomed. I like to propagate it cause it root so easy.

      Voted UP, will share and Pin on my plant board.

      Thanks for this info - I was given a money plant when I moved into my new house. After 2 years it is doing well - although I never knew it flowers! I have just started to give it baby bio and it needs a new pot now!

      Thank you Mary615 for voting me up and for pinning. Yes, I didn't know as well that Jade flowers I just like the plant that's why I was surprised when the beautiful pinkish flowers appeared. It will take a while to flower but you will appreciate it when it does.

      Beautiful! My mother had one of these that lived for years! It was started from a tiny spring and got really big. I have never heard it called anything but Jade, and no, I never saw any flowers. Maybe it was a boy tree!

      Hi! rebeccamealy, thank you for reading my hub about Jade. It was a nice surprise for me as well when it flowered as I did not think money produce flowers. For some reason I always like Jade even when it had no flowers. I like it even more now.

      I meant money tree produce flowers not money produce flowers, that would be nice as well.

      I did not know that it´s called money tree. I had that in our flat before and it was easy to grow and care. I have given this plant to my friend when we moved to Ireland years ago. Thanks for sharing the information. Have a great day!

      I have no green thumb but I always wanted to grow money tree. So far, I can only maintain bamboo plants in the house (water base) and proud to say, they're growing healthy and I love them.

      Bookmarking this page and will try to get money plant next...would you be hubbing "how to grow real money in the tree" next time? Lol!

      Cheers!

      Hi! Cam, when your money plant flowers, it will last about one to two months. It only flowers yearly but it is worth waiting for. The flowers are pinkish white and beautiful to look at.

      Help! something is eating my tall money tree plant in sun porch. Could it be spider mites?

      Hi! Rose Gunn, sometimes my money tree has white spots all over the leaves, I don't know what they are but I just rub it with my fingers and they fall off or I wash them with water. You can always check what is eating your plant by checking the base of the plant as well because sometimes the culprits hide under the base.
