How to care for a Money Tree

Asked September 6, 2020, 12:03 PM EDT

My friend recently bought me a money tree and I am struggling to understand exactly why the trunk is above the soil and if it should stay that way. Also, the leaves are rotting and the bottom of the trunk also looks dry and unhappy. Would you be able to assist me with this?
