If you’re exploring indoor trees for your home but aren’t sure where to begin, trust us when we say that the Pachira aquatica is the tree you want. It is virtually kill-proof, relatively tidy, and grows as large (or as small) as you want. They are also pretty much immune to the most common cause of black thumbs: over-watering (hey, we’ve all been there).
Nice braided little trees are sold in 4” pots. Re-pot into larger pot upon arrival and keep moist.
