Money doesn’t grow on trees in real life. But in Animal Crossing, it actually does. Now, you can get your own money tree in Animal Crossing: New Horizons to get three times the amount that you bury. But how you get this passive moneymaker is a question that we all have. Now that we’ve figured it out, we’re here to share it with you! Here is your guide on how you too can get tons of bells for free!
How to Grow a Money Tree in Animal Crossing
Grow your own money tree by following these steps:
- Find a shining spot on your island
- Dig it up with a shovel
- A bag of 1,000 Bells will be in this hole
- However, the hole will continue to glow
- Open your inventory and select a bag of bells
- Bury the bag of bells into a glowing hole
- A small sapling should appear now
- Wait for three full Animal Crossing days
- A fully grown money tree should appear in the same spot
The tree will have three bags of Bells that you can shake to get in your hands. Each will have more money in them, depending on how much you buried before.
You can only grow one money tree per day in Animal Crossing. As the glowing hole only appears once a day. Find the glowing hole to plant your money and get triple the amount in three days. If you don’t want to keep the tree in the spot that you found it in, then when it is a sapling, you can easily move it to another one instead.
Quick Tip: Plant as much money as you can to get the most out of your investment.
Once you shake the tree, however, it will become a normal tree. But, the best part of growing a money tree is that unlike other plants in Animal Crossing, your money tree doesn’t need to be watered as it grows.
That is how you can grow your own money tree in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and get a ton of bells in return. If you liked this article then check out this one on how to catch Shooting Stars in Animal Crossing.
