Why "Pachira"?


The pachira tree, more commonly known as the money tree, is symbolically associated with good financial fortune. They are typically sold to businesses and homes to encourage wealth and prosperity. Most are recognisable by their multiple braided trunks and are sold as small bonsai trees.

Legend tells of a poor farmer who first discovered the tree growing in his field. Entranced by the plant's distinctive and attractive appearance, the man took it home where he discovered that it required very little care. He decided to save the seeds and planted them, selling the grown trees at the markets to enthusiastic customers. In the end, the money tree brought the farmer his longed-for prosperity.
