1 live plant Water Chestnut w/Growing Guidelines. Ships priority mail within the continental USA only - no international shipping. No exceptions.***
Plant is similar to the picture with growth and some root development. Plant ships in clear bio-degradable hydro gel - not soil - to avoid contamination (this is important to the Aquarium folks).
Easy to find canned from china - very hard to find fresh organically grown plants for home gardening and harvest.
Fresh water chestnuts are so much better than canned! Grow your own Water Chestnuts in your pond or bin.
The plants resemble other sedge's with numerous upright tubular stems. Underground roots and lateral rhizomes growing from each plant produce other plants and the edible corms. In size and form, the corms resemble gladiolus bulbs, being round, vertically compressed, with a firm, crisp, white interior. Delicious!
Easy to grow in a small container or aquarium, reproduces like crazy in the right growing conditions.
*** Again - No International shipping on live plants or bulbs. No exceptions.***
