about this plant
The braided Pachira Aquatica, also known as the Guiana chestnut, is a beautiful green plant with a braided tree trunk which might remind you a bit of South American mangroves. Despite her Latin American roots the Pachira Aquatica is most famous in Asia, where her five-pointed leaf is regarded as being very symbolic in feng shui. She is a real asset as a large domestic plant, because she grows fast! In nature it can even grow up to 25 metres high.
