your pot is too small to contain the entire clump of thaumatococcus.
this plant can take full sun and grow well as long as there is sufficient water.
grow it in a bigger pot so that there will be more soil that can contain water.
it is not so much a question of humidity cos we are a tropical country so our humidity is high.
thaumoatococcus is a hardy and some even consider a weedy plant.

your problem is likely that the plant is root/ pot bound.


Hi Talos,

So the issue is not due to root rot? Because the onset of this degradation of the leaves came suddenly and the entire plant became like this. I have 2 other smaller pots that hold bigger clumps without this problem. Notice my earlier pics and the latest ones, the leaves colouration are rather different, is pot bound causing the plant from dying? Thanks again.

hi waimeng,
hoped our msn coversation cleared some things up for u.

here are pics of the thauma that i grow outside my house.
they're actually on the street turf area beside the pavement.

apologies for the lousy pics.
took them just now when i came back from dinner.
some leaves might have a little browning on the edges but they're all predominantly green and lush.
notice how the leaves go erect at night.

they are all growing in full sun and have not yet reached their maximum height.
likely due to the abundance of sun and also the fact that i only planted them in the ground a few months ago.
they were dug up from my garden cos they were too invasive.

Thanks for the chat and the nice pics bro. Nice plants you have there....... so that rules out the sun being the factor and wind burn should not be a major issue too. So I would think these plants should be given plenty of water esp when they are in pots.....

I noticed my plants clump together and grow erect too. I read somewhere in the net that this is due to low humidity and they are reacting to conserve moisture. Is this correct?

I see that the soil is rather clayey. Did you place undergo some drainage works upgrade and the contactors added this soil?

from wat i notice, the leaves go erect at night.
during the day, they are turned lower.

the soil is clayey and mixed with a little bit of mulch.
provided by the government so i don't get to choose.
the area in the pics is outside my house.
along the pavement.
and you are right, it was added by the contractors during the upgrading programme.

Hi
i'm having problems wif my thaumatococcus plants too.

there's this layer of powdery stuff on the leaves which i wipe off every time but it will come back. is it mildew? fungus? or some bugs?

how do i get it off and to stay off permanently?

Also i have some scale type of bugs (scale insects?) on the bones of some leaves? how to get rid besides scraping it off?

I viciously pruned my whole Thaumathingy and then wiped the remaining not-so-infected leaves with rubbing alcohol until the scales fell off.

Hello folks,

My name is Wagner, I’m from Brazil and looking for (a long time) THAUMATOCOCCUS DANIELLII for alternative medicine and sugar for one parent who have some health problems. I tried buy once in 2016 but did not received and spend lot of money on this, unfortunately (1$ = 3,39BRL today). I’m asking for some help here, because didn’t find many places on internet I assumed as serious and have some fear to lose money again. Could you help me to get the plant to grow for my family health benefits ? Of course I can pay the shipping taxes and your work, but please, need a plant or seeds that I can grow. Sorry if I wrote on a wrong topic, I have no idea how participate on this kind of forum yet. Thanks, regards, health and peace for everyone here.

Hope success, regards from Brazil
