How do I keep my money tree from rotting?
Similarly, how do I keep my money tree from dying?
Water potted money trees once a week, but do not let the soil get overly wet, as this may lead to root rot. Yellow leaves show you the plant is getting too much water. Remove from its pot a money tree that is wilting all over; replant it in new, fresh potting soil.
Also Know, why are the leaves on my money tree falling off? If your money tree leaves are yellowing and falling, your plant probably is getting too much sun or too much water. Temperature fluctuations can also cause a money tree to drop leaves, so don't put the container too close to a window or heat vent. Exposure to drafts is a leading cause of leaf loss.
Likewise, people ask, how do I know if my money tree is dying?
Spots and blisters on leaves are signs light is too intense for the plant. Yellowing in older leaves is a sign of insufficient light, according to Ohio State University Extension. A money tree can be damaged when it is left out in the cold -- below 50 degrees Fahrenheit -- or in a spot that is too warm -- above 86 F.
How often should I water my money tree?
Money trees should not be over-watered; according to GFlora.com, watering two to three times a month is sufficient. It is permissible to allow the top layer of soil to dry out to about an inch in between waterings.
