Why keep a money tree in the apartment: its properties

UAportal states that beliefs and superstitious practices can influence people's minds, leading them to place their hopes on signs, miracles, and mystical rituals. Among such unconventional beliefs is the idea that a plant with round, loose leaves, known as a money tree, can improve a family's financial situation.

Scientific point of view

Money tree, fat woman, or crassula are all different names for the same plant. Some people claim that the leaves of this plant purify the air and absorb negative energy, leading to a more positive atmosphere. However, the reality is not so clear.

The leaves of the money tree contain arsenic, which poses a significant danger when consumed, especially if you have small children or pets at home. It is important to keep this in mind and keep the money tree out of the reach of children to prevent accidental ingestion.


If the money tree withers or gets sick, it is believed that this portends future financial difficulties.

According to Feng Shui philosophy, the money tree represents feminine energy or yin, and an excess of this energy in a household can lead to increased passivity and pessimism. Balancing this energy by introducing plants with yang energy can supposedly remedy the situation.
