I have a Money Tree that someone gave me. It is healthy and pretty little although as grown since I have gotton it. I was reading that it can grow up to 7 feet tall. When is a good time to repot the tree so that it will grow to full potential?

Could be a long time before it reaches full maturity, although I have never seen one that tall except in a desert climate conservatory. Remember do not overwater. A 20 day water cycle in summer and a 30 day water cycle in winter. They like to be root bound so when you think it needs to be repotted go up two sizes from existing pot. If you overwater the leaves will shrivel and fall off.

I have a braided money tree in the original container. I've noticed lately that it is not drying out and it is constantly moist, even though I am not watering it. I am thinking about repotting it w/a sandy type of a soil so it will drain better.

I've also noticed that at the bottom of the trunk, there are loose roots. Some of the leaves look good, but some are blotchy and kind of yellowish.

Help!
