Where does the tree to stay?
A cacao tree does not like full sun all day and is completely happy with partial shade. Find a bright and warm place out of direct sunlight. Try to avoid the bright afternoon sun in the summer, but in the morning it is fine outside. spray the tree with rainwater so that it stays nice and moist around the plant.
What temperature does the cacao tree thrive in?
A temperature of at least 18 Celsius and anything above that makes this tropical tree happy, but it grows fastest around 30 degrees.
How much water does a cacao tree need?
If you give the tree some rainwater daily or every other day, that is sufficient. as long as you make sure that the soil around the root ball remains moist. Is the air in the room dry? Then spray the tree with boiled (and cooled) water or rainwater.
Does the cacao tree need extra nutrition?
Our seedlings are fed already 4 weeks after germination. Use a liquid plant food for house plants, and give them quarterly some bone meal or lava meal and mix this through the top layer, this promotes growth. In the summer the plant can grow considerably and to help a little extra you can feed the houseplant once or twice a week. The tree grows fastest between April and September and can then make good use of the extra nutrition.
When do the flowers and fruits grow?
The beautiful flowers bloom directly on the trunk after about a year and a half. (Depending on which variety it concerns) Do you also want fruit? Then you need two trees. You then have to pollinate the flowers manually, this can be done by picking one flower and letting the flowers on the other tree come into contact with the picked flower. After 4 years, the fruits grow directly on the trunk. Want to know more? Because you might want to know even more than you can find here, we invite you to use our contact form for questions.
