Thanks for the info guys.

I will have a look at bunnings in the future but in the past they are not very common.

Also green harvest don't ship to WA.

I bought mine at theThia Resterant at the Porogurups East of MT Barker.If you are in the area they are worth a visit as they have a lot of Asian plants in their nursery and lots of things that you have never heard of.

I bought some last year from Woodvale Fish & Lilly Farm, up near Wanneroo. Also bought some Kang Kong there.

Unfortunately the yabbies I had at the time destroyed the chestnuts (that's my theory) but the kang kong was a great success. Have just reminded myself to get some.

Okay... I can confirm that I saw them at Bunnings today. $9.99 per pot. Just wondering how you would plant this? In the growbeds or a floating basket in the tank??

Shameless plug. The BYAP shop has Chinese water chestnuts for $7.50 a pot.... :D

And yes we will be trying some in beds, but these are plants in pots with potting mix.
