I cut one branch of my money tree and put it in water hoping for it to grow new roots i could plant later on. I am attaching photos to this thread and I wonder why it worked for my yucca but not for my money tree 🤔 😢
Thanks for any advice you will give me 🤗

|You call in Money Tree but what plant is it? It isn't a Jade plant which is often called that. It looks a little like a Schefflera. I think the problem is maybe twofold, those leaves look damaged and you possibly have only cut a portion which doesn't have a node attached. Not all plants can root from a mere stem.
Do you have any photos of the parent plant?

|Yes, it looks a single compound leaf, I think Pachira aquatica. For a cutting, some stem should be included.

|Sue rightly points out the problem with using common plant names. Money Plant is often used to describe a Jade Plant (Crassula) and Money Tree is used to describe Pachira aquatica as Tiffany indicated. They are not even remotely related as plant species.
To propagate a Pachira, you do have to include some of the stem, called a node, as Tiffany stated. However, the same would also apply to a Yucca.
