In feng shui, bonsai Money Tree Plants are known for attracting wealth. In addition, they symbolize good luck.
However, people also like them as houseplants because they are extremely easy to care for. They don’t require much light, and they usually do just fine if you miss a watering. They actually tolerate both overwatering and under-watering quite well.
Furthermore, Money Trees are native to tropical wetlands in Central and South America. Therefore, they thrive in humid environments.
For these reasons, smaller Bonsai Money Trees make great bathroom plants. They will do fine in low light conditions, they appreciate the humidity plus they don’t take up a lot of space.

Your bonsai Money Tree will let you know when it needs water because its leaves will dry and crinkle. On the other hand, if you have watered it too much, the leaves will yellow.
The Bonsai Tree Gardener says that the more water you give it, the larger the leaves will grow. Therefore, in order to keep smaller bonsai-style leaves, minimize watering.
In addition, they recommend feeding your plant with bonsai fertilizer between March and October.
