On average, a braided money tree plant costs between $35 to $39 from an online retailer, as of April 2015. During warmer and colder months, most online retailers will ship a money tree with younger leaves to prevent damage to the plant.
The size of tree a buyer will receive through the mail will vary between 16 inches and 20 inches tall. Most retailers will ship the tree in a pot or planter so its roots are already embedded in soil. The braided money tree has a unique feature of a braided trunk and is most popularly grown as an indoor houseplant.
