Indoor Plants from Botanicly

The lucky chestnut comes from South America and grows there on land, which is flooded regularly. The tree can grow up to 20 meters high. They do not want to be as large as a houseplant in the house, which is why it is sold as an ornamental plant in cheaper sizes of 50 to 200 cm. In Asia, where the plant is known as “Malabar chestnut”, the tree is also called “money tree”. In this part of the world, the plant is a symbol of business success, so you’ll often find it in offices and businesses.

Care recommendation

The lucky chestnut needs a lot of sunlight as a tropical plant, but it must not stand in the sun. The leaves can burn. The houseplant does not bloom and grows less quickly than its wild variety. The plant needs plenty of water every three weeks. Note: You can really wait for the soil to dry out. In winter you can prevent the leaves from drying out by spraying regularly. Burnt leaves turn yellow. Brown leaves are the result of too much or too little water. You can remove these leaves immediately. The lucky chestnut is best cut in the fall to the crown. The trunk then branches again, so that you can keep the plant beautiful and compact without unsightly shoots.
