Chinese Money Tree Plant (Pachira aquatica)
Our bonsai is handcrafted following the ancient art of kokedama floral design. It is a fusion of Chinese & Japanese elements.
The origin of kokedama dates back some 500 years in Japan. Kokedama is sometimes referred to as the “poor man’s bonsai.” The story goes that local farmers/villagers at the time were too poor to afford pots so they would scrape moss of rocks and tie together with whatever they could find.
The word kokedama means “moss ball” in Japanese. Instead of a pot, kokedama replaces the typical pot with an ecofriendly version with beautiful moss. In the future if you want to transplant, simply remove the plant and reuse the moss ball as a planter.
The money tree is the perfect plant for attracting money. Place it inside your home to balance the chi energies governing your finances. The money tree is an ideal living example of harmony and balance because it represents the five elements of feng shui (wood, water, fire, metal, and earth). Plant size does not matter in attracting wealth and prosperity into the home.
These make great housewarming, hostess, birthday, and wedding gifts.
