Your Money Tree, Pachira aquatica, is slow growing and won't need to be repotted until you see roots coming out of the drainage holes. When that happens, it's time to repot - into the next sized pot. Don't put it into an oversized pot or the potting soil will sour before the roots have a chance to grow into it.

Best wishes with your new plant!
