Theobroma Cacao Care
I received a young, Theobroma 'Chocolate/Cacao plant,' today.
Obviously, it's a very sensitive plant..on its two day journey, two leaves dropped. I can tell keeping this plant alive is going to be a challenge.
Its main trunk stands about 7". It arrived bare-root.
It's fully rooted; roots are healthy and firm.
Does anyone grow Theobroma? Especially potted or as a house plant?
I'd appreciate help. Care tips: soil, sun, water, etc.
I Googled, but found very little info, mostly history and nurseries that sell plants.
Don't know if this info is significant but the seller stated, 'cocao produces pods of the yellow phenotype.
