  • SOS money tree
    <img alt="" src="http://">Hi there! I could use some help with my money tree, please. I’ve had it for about 3.5 years now, and repotted it last summer. For about the last year, it has been very sad- losing leaves consistently and not growing much. I thought it had outgrown its old pot, which was about half the size of the new one. It didn’t seem to help. I’m not sure how to help it, please let me know your thought!<br><br>Also, it doesn’t seem to allow me to upload more than one photo. The soil isn’t moldy, and the pot is about 8 inches deep.<br>Thank you!!

      Caitlyn Jones I have a money tree from the sill that’s doing the same thing!! It had been growing great for a year or so, and just this winter it stopped growing and leaves started turning yellow/brown and dropping! I noticed some droplets similar to sap under the leaves, and they aren’t turning dry before they fall off. I’m thinking it’s too much water or not enough light, but it’s in my brightest window. I also tried repotting it to new soil, since maybe there weren’t enough nutrients left in the old soil. Did you find out anything to help yours??
      Best!

      Melissa Lee I had a money tree in your situation and has since dropped all of its leaves entirely, what should I do? Is the plant considered dead or can I revive it by doing something to its bark?

      Paris Lalicata Hi Kaity! It looks like the plant could be declining due to not receiving enough light, or moisture-related stress. I'd ensure the plant is exposed to plenty of bright indirect light, and you allow the soil to dry out between waterings! Since it looks like your planter doesn't have a drainage hole ensure you're not pouring more than 1/3 of the soils volume in water. If you're unsure it's always best to water more sparingly to be on the safer side then more!
