Is a Money Tree the same thing as a schefflera? I know that there are two schffleras-this one is the lighter green one with the tips of the leaves pointed.
The tag just says Money Tree. It's a beauty, 3 feet tall with a thick braided trunk.
I plan to keep it in my bedroom near the sliding glass door.

Thanks ! I see the confusion-sometimes I see both tagged as scheffleras.
Mine looks exactly like the money tree, braid and all. I planted it in a camel color ceramic pot.
