One of the first things you'll notice about this evergreen tree is the large chestnuts attached to the bottom of it. Pretty and interesting as they may be, they're toxic if ingested. These trees can grow up to 35 metres in the wild, but as a house plant it peaks just shy of 2 metres.
This tree is part of the Fabaceae family and is native to Australia where indigenous communities used it to make animal traps and spears.
Coming from down under, this tree loves the warmth and loathes the cold so aim for a temperature between 18 and 25C. Remember to wipe its leaves down regularly to remove dust.
