Abstract: In this paper we analyze the decay and the growth for large time of weak and strong solutions to the three-dimensional viscous Boussinesq system. We show that generic solutions blow up as $ t\to \infty $ in the sense that the energy and the $ L^p$-norms of the velocity field grow to infinity for large time for $ 1\le p<3$. In the case of strong solutions we provide sharp estimates, both from above and from below, and explicit asymptotic profiles. We also show that solutions arising from $ (u_0,\theta _0)$ with zero-mean for the initial temperature $ \theta _0$ have a special behavior as $ \vert x\vert$ or $ t$ tends to infinity: contrary to the generic case, their energy dissipates to zero for large time.
