Coffee Plants are best known for coffee beans. A seed found inside the plant’s fruit is roasted and eventually brewed into our daily Cup of Joe. But few realize this tropical species makes an excellent houseplant. 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.
Your Coffee Plant prefers bright indirect sunlight, having developed in the lower levels of Ethiopian forests. Too much direct sunlight can brown the leaves.
Your Coffee Plant enjoys frequent waterings. Water when 25% of the soil volume is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.
