Lucky Chestnut Tree

In Feng Shui philosophy, a Lucky Chestnut Tree is said to bring good fortune and prosperity to any home where it thrive. Although the thin and elegant leaves seem fragile, Lucky Chestnut (Pachira aquatica) is in fact rather durable. It will thrive in both full sun and deep shade. It is also quite drought-tolerant and can survive several weeks without watering.

Add some fertilizer to the water in the summertime. But if you don’t want it to grow too big, be careful not to water and feed it too much. It can grow several centimetres per week in good light if well watered and fed.

Lucky Chestnut tolerates temperatures from 5–35°C.
