Get to Know Me

I'm a native of Central America, where I grow in freshwater swamps and estuaries. People also know me as a water chestnut because I grow edible nuts when planted outdoors. But I'm just as handsome indoors.

How to take
Care of me

65 to 85° F. Keep me away from cold drafts, air conditioning or heating vents, and hot surfaces like radiators or furnaces.
TEMPERATURE
Allow soil to dry out slightly between waterings.Water using distilled water. You also can leave tap water sitting out for 24 hours before using to allow chemicals to evaporate.
WATERING
Use a liquid or houseplant fertilizer at half strength. Fertilize me monthly during the spring-summer growing season.
FERTILIZER
If you notice spider mites, mealybugs, or whiteflies, gently wipe them off with a 50/50 mix of soap and water.
POTENTIAL PESTS
Trim aerial roots if they get too rowdy.
PRUNING
Transplant me about every two years or when I've outgrown my current pot. Choose a new pot that is 2" wider with plenty of drainage holes. Add a stake or trellis for me to climb.
REPOTTING

I'll thrive in bright to medium light. I love heavy watering and high humidity, so a pebble tray or year-round misting makes me happy. Just don't let me stand in water.

Appearance

Each one of us is unique, so I might not look exactly like the photograph. Embrace me for who I am! When I arrive, gently remove me from the box and introduce me to my new home. Check to make sure my soil is moist after the journey
