Money tree not producing money - Knowledgebase Question

I have 2 Money Trees at my house and the one is in partial sunlight and the other is in almost full sunlight.. They both get significant amounts of water and attention; the only problem is that they look like they are dying.. I have added Epsom Salt to them to help them come back to life and it did a little bit but not enough. I was wondering what I can do to bring them back to full life??

Pachira aquatica prefers a site that is flooded much of the time and may develop stilt roots under such conditions. Like most swamp trees, it is likely to grow faster if planted where the water will recede and let the roots get some oxygen now and then. Aside from moist soil and full to part sunshine, these plants don't have any special requirements. You can try feeding with a general purpose 10-10-10 and see if that helps them. Hope it does!
