These young coffee saplings were grown from the fallen berries of Coffea arabica that germinated beneath the trees where they were planted in the Cloud Forest conservatory. The dark green, glossy foliage makes it a handsome-looking houseplant and the plant produces edible, bright red coffee berries. Definitely an interesting plant to try growing at home! Since the plant is still a young sapling, it is recommended to re-pot a few subsequent rounds to keep them growing well in containers. Coffee plants require acidic soil with porous, free draining peat-based potting media.
Light: Prefer bright indoor areas with indirect sunlight, but will also tolerate low light conditions.
Water: Once a day, water the plants thoroughly till excess water drains out of the pot.
Temperature: Plant tolerates temperatures from 18-28°C
Fertilizer: An all-purpose, water-soluble balanced fertilizer that contains an equal amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (e.g. N-P-K: 15-15-15 +TE) will help to boost the plant's overall health by feeding it every two weeks. Otherwise, a slow-release fertilizer (e.g. Osmocote) can be incorporated into the potting media, and to be replenished after about 2-3 months. Do follow the recommended dosage indicated on the fertilizer’s application instructions.
