Our care tips
As a tropical plant, the Water Cocoa needs a lot of sunlight, but should not be placed in the sun itself. That can burn the leaves. The houseplant does not flower and grows less quickly than the wild variety. The plant needs a lot of water once every three weeks. Note: you can wait for the soil to dry out. In winter you can prevent the leaves from drying out by spraying regularly. Burnt leaves turn yellow. Brown leaves are the result of too much or too little water. You can remove these leaves immediately. It is best to prune water cocoa to the crown in autumn. The trunk will then branch again, so that you can keep the plant nicely compact, without unsightly offshoots.
