I have a very hearty money tree that I would like to keep small. It is currently 27″ tall. I purchased this plant at approximately 10″ tall. Can I safely cut the root system and take branch cuttingsLearn how to propagate houseplants using stem, leaf, cane, and branch cuttings from HousePlant411.com to minimize its height growth?
The best way to keep a Money Tree small is to keep it in a small pot which prevents the roots from growing too large. That said, you can certainly take stem and root cuttings which can be used to propagate a new Pachira Aquatica, (Money Tree). For the best results, use a sharp knife dipped in alcohol to cut off a young branch or root section.
