How I Grow Money Plant Indoors in Water, and a few more suggestions.

 

If there’s one plant that looks beautiful, adds aesthetics to the place, and can easily grow both indoors and outdoors, it has to be Money Plant. The plant is also known for its air-purifying qualities and bringing positivity to the place. 

I have heard from the elders in the family that if you grow a stolen twig of money plant in your home, and it flourishes, you would get rich. It doesn’t matter if it’s “stolen” or bought, but according to Vaastu and Feng Shui, the plant has a strong influence on financial well-being. 

If you are a newly turned houseplants lover, a money plant could be the best bet, to begin with as this low-maintenance climber grows easily both in soil and water. So, it saves the hassle of arranging for the soil, potting mix or even fancy pot. 

Propagating a money plant in water is also easy. One doesn’t even need to visit the nursery to buy the sapling. Just ask your friendly neighbour for a healthy stem, at least 30 cm in length with at least 3 nodes in it, and you are all set to grow a money plant in water. (Node is a point where the leave emerges). 

Sharing with you the two ways I have decorated money plant indoors in a water-filled glass vase:

  1. The basic one:

Requirements:

  • A glass bottle, vase or a jar
  • Money plant cutting, 
  • Clean Tap water

Money Plant

Steps to follow:

  • Take a glass bottle, vase or jar. Here I took a cylindrical glass bottle.
  • Fill the bottle with fresh clean water.
  • Place money plant into the bottle, ensuring that the lower part doesn’t have any leaves and at least one-two node is submerged in water.
  • Change water every week to prevent mosquitoes or any other insect from breeding.

    2. The fancy one:

Requirements

  • A glass bottle, vase, jar, preferably with a wide mouth
  • Money plant cutting
  • Colourful stones
  • White colour stones
  • 1-2 shells
  • Clean Tap water

Money Plant

Steps to follow:

  1. To make it a little different than the usual, I took a glass jug, but you can take any container in glass material.
  2. Start with placing multiple layers of coloured stones at the bottom of the jug
  3. Top it up with 1-2 layer of white coloured stones. Fill the jug with fresh clean water.
  4. Place money plant into the jug, ensuring that the lower part doesn’t have any leaves and at least one-two node is submerged in water.
  5. Change water every week to prevent mosquitoes or any other insect from breeding.

A few more suggestions:

  • Place the plant where it gets indirect sunlight. Direct light could adversely affect the growth of the plant.
  • It might take 2-3 weeks before roots start growing. You can also fold the branch inside the water to submerge more nodes in the water. This will promote the growth of roots from all nodes.
  • Keep the glass container clean to avoid the growth of algae. Ensure to transfer the money plant to another water container when you clean the first one. Before placing the plant back, wash the roots and leaves.
  • Money plant is mildly poisonous (it contains calcium oxalate crystals). It can cause itching in the throat, nausea, and may irritate the skin too. Do wash your hands properly with soap after dealing with it
  • Money plant grows well in soil and water. But don’t change the medium once it’s planted.
  • Keep trimming the plant maintain its growth as per your requirement.
  • Prune the roots too after a few months, so it doesn’t become overcrowded in the jar. 

Do you use Money Plant to decorate your indoors? Any advice or tips you want to share with me?

    Great read! Not a plant person myself and am proud to say that the money plant that my mom (a plant person) left me 2 years ago is still alive to date! haha..
