The legend began in Taiwan, with an old, poor, and hard-working farmer who lived in a small valley and was very superstitious. He found a small, unusual plant one day when he went out to the field, and never having seen anything like it before, thought to dig it up and take it home with him. Little did he know how resilient and hard to uproot the tree was. He took a lesson from the tree, deciding to be stubborn, hard working and never give up on the things he strove to work for, and turned into a wealthy entrepreneur. Often referred to in Asian cultures as the Bringer of Good Fortune - especially when given as a gift - our 5-stemed, Braided Money Tree makes the perfect addition to any home or office. It's a great way to say Congratulations, Good Luck or Happy Chinese New Year! Appropriate for plant-caring novices and experts alike, this hardy variety of bonsai is not only good looking, but it's also extremely easy to take care of; tolerant of low light conditions and even dryness, it virtually takes care of itself. Tastefully accented in a specially designed, 5 1/2 cobalt blue square pot, the money tree stands approximately 12-13 tall. Shape and color of ceramic container may vary.
