Paullinia yoco 5x5x12 inch sq. pot

Common Name: Yoco. This a relative of guarana. However, the bark of mature stems is used. Stem bark contains up to 2% caffeine and other compounds that create a feeling of euphoria. This plant forms a large liana in tropical rain forest. Pinnate leaves emerge dark red and mature to deep green.  Light shade to full sun in tropical humid rainforest conditions. In drier areas, some shade will likely be necessary.   Seems to prefer an acidic soil high in organic matter. Use slow release or dilute liquid fertilizer with micronutrients. Over fertilizing can burn the roots.  I don't expect this plant to tolerate cool conditions or frost. Outdoors in Zones 10B to 12. Image shows the deep red new growth flush.  Plants are typically 3 to 4 ft. tall when shipped. Plants are grown in 5x5x12 tree pots and are typically ready to move into larger pots when shipped.  Shipping weight 8 pounds. 

Certified to ship to all 50 US states.
