How to take care of Me:
Also called water chestnut, Guiana or Malabar chestnut, money tree or saba nut, pachira is happy with regular, deep watering or even flooding now and then if you plant it near a creek or stream. Give both indoor and outdoor plants a deep soaking at least once a week or more if the weather is very hot and keep the soil consistently moist. Dropped leaves could indicate that you are not watering often enough to keep the soil evenly moist.
Pachira grown outdoors prefers full sun to part shade and will even grow in full shade. Keep an indoor plant where it will get bright light for most but not all of the day. Rotate an indoor plant by a one-quarter turn once a week to keep it balanced and to avoid its leaves reaching for the light from only one side.
Once your indoor or outdoor plant is established, fertilize it every two weeks with an all-purpose fertilizer.
