Money Plants are used to hot dry conditions and thrive indoors in a warm room. A sunny windowsill is ideal but your plant will tolerate a range of conditions as long as it is protected from temperatures under 8°C.
As a desert plant your Money Plant (Crassula Ovata) will not need much water. Water a small amount (around a quarter of a teacup) every week or so to keep the leaves a healthy green.
Money Plants are quite slow growers and their size can easily be contained by a small pot. To encourage growth repot your plant once a year in the Spring.
Money plants are pretty resistant to neglect. However, if your plant does start looking sorry for itself, pull off any dead or soft leaves and move to a sunnier position. Dark brown leaves or leaf edges can be a sign of under watering so try watering more regularly. On the flip side, mould at the base or the bottom of the leaves is a sign of over watering or too damp a position, so try a sunnier, airier room and let it dry out for a good week or two before watering.
