Description: Castanospermum australe makes an ideal indoor plant and is widely available in florists and nurseries as baby plant with the ‘bean’ attached to its base. Multiple plantings of plants will give a good display combining the dark shiny leaves of the tree with the novelty ornamental value of the giant seeds. It is an attractive evergreen plant. The “bean” in the common name Lucky Bean Plant refers to the large seeds partially exposed above the soil and from which the plants have sprouted. The ‘bean’ pod will naturally dry up and separate from the plant in several months and can be removed without any effect to the plant
