The pachira (pachira aquatica) is a tropical plant whose flowers give edible nuts. Although native to South America, its symbolism is strongest in Asia. According to the Chinese tradition, its palmate leaves resemble hands that catch the good fortune of which the twisted trunk becomes the guardian.
Also popular in Japan and Taiwan, it is often used for ornamental purposes and makes a great housewarming gift by guaranteeing happiness and prosperity to the new home.
The fruits of the pachira are those of the work of art: To the one who cherishes it, it will exalt his artistic passion and his interior. To the one who invests, it guarantees a safe, even prosperous investment.
