How to deal with and remedy the yellow and withered leaves of money tree (Pachira aquatic) in winter

In winter, the leaves of money tree (Pachira aquatic) are yellow and withered, and we can give it ventilation, water drainage and fertilizer reduction.

Note: Money tree(Pachira aquatic) is known by its common names Malabar chestnut, French peanut, Guiana chestnut, Provision tree, Saba nut, Monguba (Brazil), Pumpo (Guatemala) and is commercially sold under the names Money tree and Money plant.

In winter, the environment is too closed in the low temperature environment.

This will cause a large number of bacteria in the air to grow, which leads to the yellow leaves produced by money tree (Pachira aquatic).

So in the afternoon of sunny days, we need to properly open windows for money tree (Pachira aquatic).

In winter and low temperature, the evaporation rate of moisture in money tree (Pachira aquatic) is slower.

So we need to wait for the basin of money tree (Pachira aquatic) to dry before watering it.

If the soil of money tree (Pachira aquatic) is water, its leaves will rot and turn yellow.

So we need to reduce the amount of fertilizer applied to money tree (Pachira aquatic) appropriately.

If not, it will produce harmful fertilizer.

And the harmful fertilizer is to make money tree yellow and leaves.

1. Strengthen ventilation

In winter and low temperature, we usually put money tree (Pachira aquatic) in a warm indoor maintenance.

Because the temperature is low outside and the indoor environment is too closed.

So it will lead to a large number of bacteria in the air, which will affect the normal growth of money tree (Pachira aquatic).

In this way, the yellow and dry leaves will appear in money tree (Pachira aquatic).

So on a sunny afternoon, we need to properly open windows and ventilate money tree (Pachira aquatic) to ensure air circulation inside and outside.

2. Discharge of water

We know that money tree (Pachira aquatic) can withstand drought more strongly.

In winter and low temperature, the evaporation rate of water in money tree (Pachira aquatic) is slow.

So in the process of maintaining money tree (Pachira aquatic), we need to reduce the water quantity properly.

This will allow the basin soil of money tree (Pachira aquatic) to be slightly dry.

If you water money tree too much, it will cause its roots to fail to absorb water.

Then the leaves of money tree (Pachira aquatic) will wither and turn yellow.

So we need to loosen money tree (Pachira aquatic) in time and drain the water from its soil.

At the same time, we also need to transfer money tree (Pachira aquatic) to a ventilated environment to accelerate the evaporation rate of its water.

3. Reduce fertilization

In winter and low temperature, the growth rate of money tree (Pachira aquatic) will slow down, and its demand for nutrients is small.

So during this period, we need to reduce or suspend fertilization for money tree.

If we normally fertilize money tree, it will pile up in its soil.

This would produce harmful fertilizer.

And harmful fertilizer burns the roots of money tree.

This would cause the leaf of money tree (Pachira aquatic) to wither and yellow.

So we need to put water and dilute fertilizer into the soil of money tree (Pachira aquatic).

If money tree (Pachira aquatic) is in serious condition, we need to change basin cultivation for it.

4. Spray agent

In winter, money tree (Pachira aquatic) can infect with leaf spot or blight.

This will also cause the leaves of money tree (Pachira aquatic) to turn yellow and fall.

At this time, we need to use sterilized sharp scissors to cut off the seriously ill leaves of money tree (Pachira aquatic).

We also spray diluted carbendazim or Bacillin solution to treat money tree (Pachira aquatic).

We can spray money tree (Pachira aquatic) once every 10-15 days.

And we have to spray money tree (Pachira aquatic) with such a solution for 2 to 3 times.

This will allow you to get the effect of treating money tree.
