Hello. I am trying to allow this tree to remain in our business. The tree looks like it was once twisted. It seems to have sentimental value to its owner. It needs to be repotted as well. It has fairly good growth at the tops. The branches are about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter where I would like to cut it back to. This would effectively remove all green from this plant though if done in stages some leaves could remain. My questions are. Should I replant it then allow recovery then prune or vise-versa? Oh, this tree lives indoors with very little natural lighting and under fluorescent light which seems to be adequate. Please advise on as much that you feel may help. I will try to attach or add a photo as soon as possible. Thank You. Ronny

Money tree? I thought money did not grow on trees. If it does, stop worrying about it, because you can screw up and just buy a new one.

I would advise cutting in stage and leaving at least a branch or two with leaves to help it recover a bit. My neighbor chopped the head of the money tree and it dies.

The tree loves florescent light, even more than sunlight.

Kill the money tree is bad luck, especially in business.
