HAVE: Theobroma cacao (Chocolate)

Posted by cactusrequiem Zone 8 SC (My Page) on

I have a number of trades of seedling Theobroma cacao, aka Chocolate, to trade.
I also have a fair amount of Lychee tree seedlings for trade.
I am looking for named Camellias or Orchids.
The major rub is, it really needs to be somebody with a greenhouse or sunroom and they need to be somewhere close to Charleston, SC. These plants DO NOT ship well, the cold kills them. I am not sure of the low temp capability of the Lychee, but I know 40 degrees or less kills the cacao.
I travel quite a lot in the state of SC and occasionally into the Charlotte, NC area. If you are anywhere close to these areas and would like to trade, PLEASE let me know. We can work out a "In Person Trade" at a mall or some other parking lot/rest area.

RE: HAVE: Theobroma cacao (Chocolate)

Just a note that I have a Theobroma cacao that has grown to giant size (it touches the ceiling) inside the house as a houseplant. So they can be kept as houseplants, they would prefer higher humidity than most people have in their homes but they will adapt to indoor conditions. I used to haul mine outdoors for the summer but it has gotten too big to move. Don't believe everything you read on the web about this tree.
