A Guide: How to grow a coffee as a house plant!
Follow these general guidelines to keep your new coffee plant happy and thriving!
Light: Coffee plants prefer bright, indirect light. Place your plant near a window with filtered sunlight.
Temperature: Keep the indoor temperature between 60-70°F (15-24°C). Avoid sudden temperature changes.
Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Use room temperature water.
Humidity: Coffee plants like higher humidity. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves or placing a tray of water near the plant.
Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix with organic matter. Coffee plants prefer slightly acidic soil.
Fertilization: Feed your coffee plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce fertilization in the fall and winter.
Pruning: Prune your coffee plant to encourage bushier growth. Remove any yellow or damaged leaves regularly.
Pests: Keep an eye out for pests like spider mites and scale. If you notice any, treat them promptly with insecticidal soap
