But remember that direct light burns the leaves of the plant.

You should know that if your Money Plant Satin is placed outdoors on a shaded balcony it might need to be watered more often than a plant placed indoors. Ideally, you must water the Money Plant Satin once or twice a week ensuring that you do not overwater the plant or let the container sit in stagnant water for a long time.

Selecting the right Pots and Planters is essential as a wrong step may lead to root rot and eventual wilting of the plant.

That wraps up our Care Guide for the Money Plant Satin. The humble Money Plant has become a houseplant staple in most Indian homes. Since Money Plant Satin grows into a trailing vine, the size of a mature plant really depends on the ambient conditions that the plant is subject to and the kind of pot you provide. If you provide a large pot with a moss pole for the plant to climb, it starts rooting at its nodes and grows into a long vine. When nurtured in a hanging pot, the vines tend to be shorter without the vertical support this climber needs. And therefore the plant adds so much life to your space.
