Water Chestnut is a premium uncommon plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Guardian IconGuardian class. It costs 2SunPvZH to play, and has 8HeartPvZH. It has the Amphibious and Team-Up traits, and does not have any abilities.

In the boss battle for the mission Disco Inferno!, the plant hero starts with a Water Chestnut on the third lane.


It is based on a chestnut, an edible nut produced from trees in the beech family Fagaceae.

Its Amphibious trait is a reference to the word "water" in its name.

  • Tribe order change: Nut Root → Root Nut



This is basically Wall-Nut with more health and the Amphibious trait, but with a higher sun cost, so use this plant in the same manner as you do with Wall-Nut. This can be an additional replacement for Wall-Nut.

Its main reason to use it compared to a regular Wall-Nut is the Amphibious trait; using this, you can protect your plants from powerful Amphibious zombies up to Deep Sea Gargantuar. Playing some decently powerful Amphibious plants behind it such as Cattail can make for a good strategy.

In addition, since it is a nut, it benefits from Smackadamia's boost of +2HeartPvZH, and since it has no strength, it does benefit from Spineapple's boost of +2StrengthPvZH. In addition, Mirror-Nut can benefit from it, since it does classify as a nut.

As Grass Knuckles, you could boost it with Fertilize to prevent Rolling Stone, Rocket Science, and Weed Spray from destroying it.


Destroy this plant in the same manner as you do with a Wall-Nut. It is only a slightly stronger Wall-Nut that can be planted in the aquatic lane. Rolling Stone and Weed Spray are able to destroy it because of its lack of strength. If those aren't an option, resort to Amphibious zombies or damaging tricks.
