Scientific name: Pachira Aquatica

Originating from Central and South America, the name 'Pachira Aquatica' comes from the old Guyanese Indian language meaning 'sweet water nut'. What makes it so special is the structure of the plant - the large green leaves that grow on the long stems allow light to pass through and it also stores water in its trunk. This means it requires little attention in comparison to other plants making it super easy to look after and very hard to kill. It is ideal for those wanting to bring some impressive greenery into their home without having to spend too much time and energy.

Pachira love moist soil (hard to overwater) and does well in indirect sunlight, so growing indoors is not a problem - simply position in a fairly sunny spot.

According to Chinese feng shui the Pachira is believed to be lucky. It has two or three braided trunks which are said to 'lock in' luck and treasure and dark green leaves that resemble green hands that capture happiness and good fortune. Traditionally given as a housewarming gift, we hope it brings lots of happiness and good fortune to your home!
