Also known as Malabar Chestnut (or Pechora Aquatic), the Money Tree is known to bring prosperity and good luck. The braiding of the tree is what's said to be the symbol of money and luck locking together.
This plant will grow while in indirect sunlight, but if you notice it starting to wither, you may need to place in a better lit area. Money Trees thrive in humid weather, and need to be watered every six to ten days.
Junipers are known to create deadwood, due to live veins getting trapped under dying branches. This tree thrives better when you mist the soil, and needs humidity in order to grow.
If you heavily water the plant, it will become stressed out and grow tiny needle-like foliage again. Junipers are gorgeous, and many people decorate the soil with painted rocks to add that extra Zen.
You could use fishbowls, clear birdhouses, coffee pots, even lightbulbs! However, some people use pebbles, shells, sand, or limestone for the base of their Terrarium (it's okay to mix pebbles with coconut husk fiber, but mixing anything else will clash with the PH balance of the fiber).

Peace Lilies can grow anywhere from 16 inches to 6 feet, depending on how large their pot is. Because Peace Lilies cleanse the air, they will also collect dust on their leaves.
When this happens, you'll want to place the plant in a sink and gently rinse off the leaves with cool water. If you're not able to access a sink, you can take a damp towel and handwash the leaves yourself.
These plants flourish with medium to low light, and only need to be watered once a week. Peace Lilies look amazing no matter where in your office you put them.
