Braiding...

Postby Elbensen » Aug 19, 2010 7:18 pm

I just bought a Money Tree from Wal-Mart. It's a smaller one, the trunks arn't even as tall as my hand and the stokes are maybe a foot high. The trunks were cut with new sprouts on it.

I was left a little confused as to how the braiding will occur...
Will it braid on its own? Should I be taking certain measures? Have the trunks reached a level of thickness that braiding is no longer an option?


If anyone could help it would be great!

The money tree (Pachira aquatica) doesnt self braid it's trunks, this is done manually. I cant make out in the picture if your stems are too rigid at this point to braid them, but gently try to bend a stem to see if they are pliable enough to do so. If not, they are still beautiful plants.
Hope this has helped
