More info

Pachira is part of green plants from tropical areas. In its natural habitat, it is an evergreen that reaches 18 meters high. It is a very characteristic plant, which in potted cultivation is recognizable by the braided trunk to the base, which greatly enhances its scenic effect. They are plants that have some kinship with Baobab and Chorisia. In nature it also produces fruits similar to small pumpkins, which in some countries are also called "wild chestnuts" for their flavor.

Exposure and brightness: It prefers bright and very humid places, but not direct exposure to sunlight, which could severely damage it.

Temperature: It can withstand temperatures below 15 ° C.

Soil type: It requires a slightly acidic soil: the ideal is a mix of fertile soil, peat and sand, even better if mixed with leaves.

Irrigation: Requires plenty of moisture, and should be watered with rain water and not limestone every 3-4 days (but only if the soil is dry on the surface). In winter, watering is reduced. We very well spray the hair.

Fertilization: Every 3-4 weeks with liquid fertilizer for green plants.

N.B. The specifications described above may vary depending on the climate of the area where the plant is placed and the season.
