We have a few Theobroma spp. in cultivation here .
T.cacoa while young prefers 50% shade , and frequent watering . In its 
native habitat it grows in groups along riverbanks and may stand in flowing 
water for 6 months at a time .It is a very tropical plant and has a very big 
tap root , so would not thrive in a pot, especially over winter outside of 
its ideal temp. range.
A well grown plant looks stunning and the fruits are amazing as they can be 
a few different colours, yellow,red,purple! Also the flesh around the beans 
can be very sweet , a real treat.
