Theobroma Cacao Cutting?

rhizophora(8)June 24, 2008


I have recently taken home a cutting of theobroma cacao due to 'accidental' circumstances :D. It is 4 inches long and I have planted it in moist compost, with added perlite. It is on bottom heat, dipped in rooting hormone, air temperature approx 28C (82F) and 100% humidity. The propagator is in a north facing windowsill. I am not sure if it will root, but I am no expert at all. The bottom two growth nodes are under the compost. Is it likely to root?

They are regularly propagated by cuttings, but whether you have the right humidity and soil composition to accomplish it, I just don't know. By the way, are those Coco Puffs on top?

They looks like hydotron balls.
