Trapa Natans Nuts | Water Chestnut (Pack of 5)

Trapa Natans, or the Water Chestnut, provide leaf cover that shades the surface which helps prevent the growth of algae. Trapa Natan's reproduce by forming nuts which sink to the bottom in the autumn. These nuts are called Water Chestnuts and are used in Chinese food dishes.

To cultivate Water Chestnut plants, plant the nuts 10cm deep in soil, keep the soil moist but not submerged until their shoots are about 20 – 25 cm high. At this point fill your planting container with water to about 10cm above soil level.

Trapa Natans will die back naturally. In warm summers they will produce nuts that will survive at the bottom of the pond to produce new plants the following season. These Water Chestnut nuts are supplied in portions of 5. Please note, water chestnut is not a native plant.

Are floating plants good for my garden pond?
Yes, floating plants like Trapa Natans - Water Chestnut, are great for keeping pond water healthy for fish and aquatic life. The floating roots are long and will trap and help break down waste and plant debris, as well as trapping small insects and creatures for fish to feed on. Floating plants also provide shade for the pond inhabitants, blocking sunlight to reduce algae growth. For a helpful guide on how to keep and maintain floating plants please click here.
