Does this plant remind you of the fairy tale ‘Jack and the Beanstalk”? Just like in the story this plant grows tall from a bean-like seed. This interesting plant comes potted in our UFO Planter. A characterful gift for a plant lover!
Despite the “chestnut”, in the name it is actually more closely related to the Sensitive Plant (Mimosa pudica). This unusual house plant comes with a bean-shaped seed still attached. In the wild, it's a large evergreen tree growing up to 40m (130 feet) tall!
Indoors, it grows slowly, it tends to restrict its size based on the amount of space available. The ‘bean’ pod will naturally dry up and separate from the plant in several months and can be removed without any effect to the plant. It has dark glossy green leaves and forms a tree-like cluster at the top of the stem. The bark is brown to grayish-brown and smells of cucumber if chopped.
Overall it’s a fairly easy to care for plant, it certainly will add some character to your space.
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
