How to Grow Cacao Trees
Whether you are drinking it, baking with it or eating it, chocolate is so good and satisfying. Shirley Bovshow shows us how we can grow our own chocolate at home with a cacao tree. It is a tropical tree that requires you bring a tropic like environment to your home with soil and air humidity.
Cacao Tree Care:
Use acidic soil and fertilize 3x a year (spring, summer, and fall):
- Use a fertilizer suitable for acid-loving plants and supplement with a nitrogen rich fertilizer like “Bat Guano.” The trees need this to grow lush green leaves which act like solar panels, moving up, down, sideways, and any direction it needs to gather or AVOID the sunlight!
- Add 2 tbsps of Mycorrhiza, an organic root enhancer filled with beneficial bacteria. It is like probiotics for the soil, making nutrients more readily available for your tree. Crush or chop healthy fallen cacao leaves and put on top of soil together with some store-bought cocoa mulch to act as mulch and keep the soil moist.
USE A HUMIDIFIER! Cacao trees need at least 50% air humidity and must be watered deeply at least 1 x per week!
