Growing Coffee Plants As Indoor Plants
Indoor plants breathe life into interiors, while cleaning the air as they grow. There are so many choices when it comes to indoor plants for your house. If you are looking for unique indoor plants, then choose coffee plants. Coffee indoor plants prefer bright, but indirect, light. This means that they should be placed near a window but not directly in the window itself. They also cannot take temperatures below freezing and will not do well in temperatures that stay consistently below 65 F. (18 C.). When growing coffee indoor plants, the soil needs to stay moist, but not soaking wet. Also, make sure that both the soil and the pot that your coffee plant is growing in has good drainage. The humidity around the plant will need to stay high as well. Setting your coffee plant on a water-filled pebble tray will help with humidity.
Like many indoor plants, a coffee plant will need less water in the winter than in the summer. Your coffee plant care routine can also include light fertilizing with a balanced fertilizer once every to to three months in the spring and summer. Keep in mind that a happy coffee plant can grow up to 6 feet tall. Therefore, you will either need to be able to provide enough space for the plant or make pruning a regular part of caring for your coffee plant. If the coffee plant is grown in ideal conditions indoors, it will eventually flower when it matures, which can take three to five years.
