The Pachira Braid prefers to be kept moist, but not too wet. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, but avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot. Make sure the pot has proper drainage to prevent water from pooling at the bottom.
The Pachira Braid thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can scorch the leaves. If the leaves start to turn yellow or brown, it may be getting too much direct light. On the other hand, if the leaves are dark green and appear to be stretching towards the light, it may need more light.
The Pachira Braid benefits from regular fertilization during the growing season, which is spring and summer. Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two to four weeks, following the instructions on the package. During the dormant season, which is fall and winter, reduce or stop fertilization.
The Pachira Braid can tolerate being root-bound, but it may need to be repotted every two to three years to refresh the soil and give the roots more room to grow. Choose a pot that is one size larger than the current pot, and use a well-draining potting mix. Gently remove the plant from the old pot, loosen any tangled roots, and place it in the new pot. Water thoroughly and avoid fertilization for a few weeks to allow the plant to acclimate to its new environment.
