Water ChestnutTenere asciutto

Let's water abundantly, moistening the soil deeply with 1-2 buckets of water , but let's act only when the substratum is dry, leaving it dry even for 4-5 weeks before watering it.

Cultivation Chestnut
The development of the The Chestnut is erect; in genereral in the lower part they have a pretty bare stem, while p many ramifications develop towards the top. This plant in the summer assumes a white colouring; it is large in size and can reach 16 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. As they grow, these plants become the size of a tree.
