I just had to share how cute this is😍 I went plant shopping with my soon-to-be 2 year old and she picked both the plant and the pot herself! (She clearly thinks mom needs a literal money tree the way she was adding plants to the cart without me noticing for a hot sec. Caught her at plant #3🀣) So far this guy is happy and sprouting some new leaves, but tips? #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #kidsloveplantstoo #MoneyTree #StartThemYoung
10ft to light, indirect
5” pot without drainage
Last watered 3 weeks ago
I’m also pretty new to plants. I put it directly in this pot not thinking much about drainage (still learning), but there is quite a bit of soil below until you get to the actual plant. For decorative pots like these, would you put this into a plastic pot with drainage before placing it into the decorative one? Is it okay?
@coffeeNcalathea aww! it is so sweet to see their love and fascination for things through their eyes! I love that!

Good to know, thank you! And wow!! I didn’t realize they could get so big! That’s beautiful! What a sweet way to remember herβ™₯️
For decorative pots, you can place a plastic one inside, you can take it to a nursery and see if they will drill a hole for you (mine will do it for $2 for an outside pot), if you’re handy then you can drill yourself (I recommend watching a video on YouTube, etc) or finally just be cautious when you water. I have found that a cheap soil meter off amazon will do the trick.

Gorgeous pot and plant. 🌱 ☺️ and I love the name.
