I got this money tree and I replanted it into a bigger pot. It's been doing well and is already getting dense. I'd like it to grow tall so I want to braid it. I don't know which branches to cut and which ones to keep for this purpose.


Also how tall will it get if I don't braid it?

Does it have 3 or more trunks? I can't see what's going on under the leaves. Multiple trunks are necessary for braiding. Whether braided or not, it will get as tall as conditions (and your pruners) will allow.

Yeah it has. It was braided (though little) when I bought it.
