Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This spectacular house plant is a real show-off! Its large palmate leaves are divided into 5 glossy leaflets that form an attractive crown of foliage above a woody, plaited stem. Despite its exotic looks, Pachira aquatica is easy to grow in a warm bright position, although it prefers to be protected from strong, direct sunlight. This quick growing indoor tree makes a majestic focal point in the conservatory or a bright room at home. It also copes well under fluorescent lights, making a great choice for the office! Height: 150cm (59”). Spread: 100cm (39”).

Grow in a bright or lightly shaded spot, away from the scorch of hot, direct sunlight. Pachira aquatica requires average temperatures of 16-24C (60-75F) to thrive, but will tolerate occasional periods down to a minimum of 12C (53F). Avoid positions next to radiators or cold draughts.
Feed and water Pachira regularly from March to September while plants are in active growth. Always allow the pot to drain thoroughly after watering. Pachira appreciates a humid atmosphere - stand it on a tray filled with pebbles and water. As the water evaporates it will increase humidity around the plant.
