The large and showy flowers are perfect and terminal, with a long peduncle. The petals and numerous stamens are white. Fruits are much smaller than in P. aqautica, and elongated rather than round. The allegedly edible seeds are only about 1 inch long. Grow in full sun for best flower production. Used for making braided Money Tree bonsai.
In some sources Pachira aquatica is indicated as synonim of Pachira glabra.
