How to get a Money Tree?
The Money Tree in Sims 4 was introduced in the Sims 4: Seasons expansion pack. Unlike other plants, this one can be obtained only in Rewards Store. This perk in The Sims 4 requires a few more steps compared to earlier Sims games. Rather than immediately sprouting you’ll have to accumulate enough reward points to purchase one. First, you need to get the seed for the plant from your aspiration rewards store for 5,000 reward points.
They can be purchased while in live mode and you can find them in your inventory once you’ve bought them. Considering that the money tree gives simoleons, is an awesome way to spend your satisfaction points.
How to plant a sims 4 money tree?
Once you have the seed, it is time to plant it. The process of planting the money tree seed is just like planting any other regular plant. Click on the seed, and select ”Plant”. You can plant this money-making gem during any of the four seasons, which is awesome. However, it takes about 7 days before it grows into a full tree with beautiful golden leaves. This means that you’ll have to wait for the first simoleon harvest cycle. So, if you worry about the Sims 4 money tree not growing, just give it some time.

Money Tree Fruits: harvesting from the Money Tree
An important part of having a Money Tree is knowing how to tend to it. In The Sims 4, tending to your money tree involves watering it consistently. To harvest the money tree returns, you can click on it and choose the option to either “Sell Money Fruit” or “Sell All”. In Sims 4, you’ll need to sell the fruits from the tree as they can’t be directly converted into Simoleons without that step.
Once the tree is ready for the first harvest after seven days, you’ll be able to harvest from it daily. A money tree provides daily harvests at 6:00 AM every morning, giving you some steady cash even at normal nice quality.
How much can you get from the Money Tree?
The money received from the tree entirely depends on the quality of your Sims 4 Money Tree. Overall, you can get anywhere from $8,000 to $22,000. There are five quality levels you can get, and the good news is – the quality isn’t permanent. You’ll be able to improve and get excellent quality of the money tree with time. We’ve created a short table depicting the equivalents you’ll receive.
- Normal: 8,000
- Nice: 11,500
- Excellent: 15,110
- Magnificent: 18,670
- Perfect: 22,225
How to get more simoleons from money tree
There are a few ways to multiply your money tree’s harvest. The most organic way is to purchase another money tree from the rewards store. However, there are alternative methods. One, if your Sims can cast spells, they can copy the tree. Two, you can use the existing, fully grown money tree to take cuts from it and graft it. Three, you can use the existing money tree glitch in the game. And four, you can use cheats.

1. ”Copypasto” spell
If you have a legit spellcaster in your Sims family, you can make them perform the ”Copypasto” spell. The spell copies any object and can be performed on the money tree. You can use the spell both on the seed and the grown tree. The best bet is to perform it on the seed so that you have two fully harvestable trees ready at the same time.
2. Grafting money tree
You can graft The Sims 4 Money Tree can onto other plants with full maturity if you’ve got some other plants in your garden. Once it’s bought, planted, and fully grown, you can perform the ”Take Cuts” action to take a sample of the money tree and graft it onto another healthy plant. If you have more plants available, choose the healthiest and the fastest growing one, as this will impact the quality of simoleons that you get.
However, be aware that grafting and cutting actions can be performed only by Sims that has Level 5 Gardening skill. If you can graft, you won’t have to spend another 5,000 reward points on buying another tree.

You can get a few new money tree seeds and create a whole new money tree garden!
Planting these seeds from the Sims 4 Money tree glitch allows you to get more money trees. This also means more net profit in the long term. It is the perfect way to make some fast money. You won’t be able to harvest from the original until the next day and will have to wait for seven days for additional seeds to sprout and become harvestable.
