I have 2 cocoa bean seeds and would like to try to plant them and see what happens. I don't expect to see a tree, but will give it a try. Has anyone had any experience with these?

Ive never had experience but I know of this thing called tissue culture. You will have a high production rate and since this is probably a hard to propagate plant, tissue culture would be good for it. Heres a description and a good place to buy a set:

It sounds hard to do, but its not supposed to be. Ive researched a lot on this but I havent tried it YET. I dont want to sound like a know it all or anything but dont take my word for it. I hope to get that kit above soon. People Ive talked to have reported great success with it.
