4. Castanospermum - a giant bean

One of the most unusual large indoor crops looks like a hybrid of legumes and avocados. Castanospermum develops from bizarre giant beans, flaunts with large leaves and forms a treelike crown, although it is not actually arboreal. This amazing Australian plant came to us as an exotic indoor giant. Despite the rather difficult care, castanospermums are attracting more and more flower growers.

This amazing culture can hardly be called widespread and widespread. In nature, the plant is capable of reaching 35 m, and it develops in the form of powerful trees. In our country, Australian castanospermums are most often sold as indoor exotic, placing several compact specimens in one container. But gradually castanospermum reveals its true size.

  • Castanospermum height: up to 2 m.
  • Growth form: a tree-like plant with a thin, straight trunk and spreading feathery leaves.

Castanospermum South, or South Chestnut, or Australian Chestnut, or Black Chestnut (Castanospermum australe) develops from a large bean, produces a powerful thin straight shoot with spreading out to the sides, almost horizontally branching odd-pinnate leaves that look like twigs. Castanospermum leaves consist of 5 or 7 large, oval-lanceolate lobes, up to 15 cm long and 6-7 cm wide. Leathery leaves surprise not so much with their size, but with an unusual glossy surface, reminiscent of the best evergreen crops. Outwardly, castanospermum really resembles an avocado in some way, only in a glossy and more spectacular version.

Under indoor conditions, castanospermums do not bloom, but in nature they surprise with bright red flowers, in the place of which large pod-shaped fruits are tied.

Castanospermum can be grown in several plants in one pot. When the bean cotyledons shrivel and separate from the trunks on their own, they begin to depend on fertilizing and grow roots more actively. Small containers are usually selected for a plant, starting with small pots with a diameter of about 15 cm and increasing it only by 2-3 cm during the growth process. Castanospermum does not grow very quickly, but its transformation from tiny sprouts to large giants looks amazing.

For castanospermum, it is necessary to provide the brightest possible lighting. The plant is content with standard room temperatures, in winter it can withstand a cold snap if necessary, but the temperature for this culture should never fall below 10 degrees Celsius.

  • Castanospermum transplant: only as needed.
  • Soil for castanospermum: light, loose, versatile.

Caring for castanospermum will not cause difficulty even for novice growers. At a young age, the plants are not fed: castanospermum is able to obtain all the necessary nutrients from the beans. But at a more mature age, during the period of active development, fertilizers for him begin to be applied weekly, but in reduced doses. Water the giant with soft water without drought or waterlogging. But if watering does not cause trouble, then the love of castanospermum for the most humid air can cause a lot of additional trouble, because the plants will need not only spraying, but also the installation of humidifiers, and frequent showering.

Castanospermums are propagated by semi-lignified cuttings and seeds, and growing from seeds gives a lot of pleasure from observing the transformation of tiny sprouts into giant trees.
