How to Propagate Cocoa
- Cocoa is propagated both by seed and by cuttings.
- Seeds are planted at stake where 3 seeds are planted per hole and later thinned to one.
- Germination often is complete within 15 days of seed planting.
- Alternatively, cuttings can be obtained from young vigorous healthy trees in the mother garden. These should be cut at a right angle usually above anode 5-12 inch along with 3-9 leaves.
- Remove the bottom leaves and dip the base in a rooting hormone.
