Why is it called ‘a money plant’ ?
Story of Money Plant:
There is a popular story of a poor man from Taiwan, who prayed to God for relief from his financial burdens.
One day he found a plant in his field, perceived by him as a solution to all problems.
Resulting directly from his prayers, his loving care and nurturing of this plant yielded seeds, nuts and more plants. He sold these plants which brought an end to his money troubles.
Thus, it is given as a gift in the hopes of bringing prosperity to our near and dear ones.
Money plants are mainly used as indoor plant because of the foliage and rapid growth. They are known for their rounded, coin like, seed pods.
These hardy plants will thrive with the minimum of fuss apart from giving the green hue to the interiors and the garden. They can also be grown as climbers on walls, trellis and trees or in hanging baskets.
Feng Shui principles regard money plant as one of the best plants to purify polluted air. It energizes the home by filtering air and increasing oxygen inflow.
Vastu experts say plants activate positive energy in our day-to-day lives. They recommend planting money plants inside the house as they bring good luck.

Buy ready to use nutrient rich soil
As with any kind of garden, success usually starts with the soil. Most vegetables do best in moist, well-drained soil that’s rich in organic matter (such as compost or peat moss).
If you don’t have a good soil for vegetables, you can also buy ready to use nutrient rich soil.
In general use a soil-based compost placed over a generous layer of drainage material such as earthenware crocks, pebbles or gravel. Water and feed regularly, especially while plants are bearing flowers and fruit, when a high-potash fertilizer is recommended.
