Water your Money Tree on a weekly basis, and take extra care to evenly disperse the water across its soil. This plant enjoys being watered, and it is not quite as drought-resistant as others. However, it is important that you do not overwater it, as that could lead to dangerous complications such as root rot, which can be deadly.
To check the water levels of your plant’s soil, place a water meter in the soil, where it will give you an accurate indication. If you do not own a water meter, stick one finger knuckle-deep into the soil. At this depth, you will be able to accurately account for the soil’s level of moistness.
