Did you know that the same plant that grows coffee beans also makes a great houseplant? Considered to be among the easiest and hardiest of houseplants, the coffee plant is great for both experienced and beginner gardeners. With broad, sturdy green leaves, and thick, hardy stalks, the coffee plant makes a bold statement in any room. If well taken care of, it will also produce delicate white flowers that eventually evolve into clusters of plump cherries.
Grow Coffee Plant in a bright spot to keep it happiest. The more light, the better -- and the faster it grows. If your coffee eventually gets too big, you can trim it back whenever you like. Doing so will cause your coffee to develop more dense, bushy growth. Make sure that the light is indirect, as too much direct sunlight can brown the leaves.
Water coffee regularly -- enough to keep the soil moist, but not wet or saturated. Coffee hates wet feet, so don't let water stand in its saucer for extended periods. Like many houseplants, coffee is quick to wilt when it's not happy, but it's just as quick to recover once watered.
Temp & Humidity
A tropical indoor plant, the Coffee Plant appreciates abundant levels of relative humidity. If the air in your home is too dry, your coffee plant may end up with brown leaf tips or edges. Boost humidity through misting or a humidifier to keep new leaves healthy. It cannot tolerate freezing and prefers temps between 65 and 80 degrees.
Fertilize your Coffee Plant once a month during spring and summer with a liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength.
Coffee Plant is toxic to both humans and pets.
