Pachira aquatica, also called giana chestnut, is a tropical tree that grows in swamps and wetlands. Despite the “tropical” label, this tree requires less watering and maintenance than most indoor trees. It also has a fancy twisted trunk for added aesthetic.

Like most trees, pachira aquaticas like indirect sunlight. As a swamp tree, it likes water and can handle some over-watering. You only need to moisten the soil 1-2 times a week depending on humidity. For even leaf growth, turn the pot every time you water it.
