If you're a fan of coffee, then you'll love the coffee plant. One of the easiest houseplants to grow, the coffee plant is capable of producing the same beans that no one can live without in your home. With its attractive green foliage and easy care, the coffee plant is sure to find a place in anyone's home.
Sun: Morning sun, or bright, indirect light. In its natural environment, the coffee plant lives on the forest floor, so harsh sunlight will brown the leaves.
Water: Frequently. While the plant needs to be watered all the time, make sure not to leave the plant sitting in water (as that will cause root rot). The soil should be damp, but not wet or dripping water.
Fertilize: Use a liquid houseplant fertilizer. Fertilize every 2-4 weeks in the summer, and only every month (or less) during winter.
Temperature and Humidity: Coffee plants prefer 20°-25° C. While they can adapt to higher temperatures (which do promote growth) higher temperature also results in worse quality beans. Coffee plants love high humidity, so will do very well in high humidity environments (like a bathroom), or getting spritzed with water regularly.
Additional Comments: Coffee plants can get to about 6 feet tall, even indoors. If you want to maintain the size of a coffee plant, make sure the regularly prune it back. Additionally, coffee plants will only produce beans after they mature, at 3-5 years old.
