During the fall and winter of 2020, many of our clients were able to buy, for the fist time, coffee seedlings at our café!
This is a very exciting project for us - to bring exotic plants to our clients.
We had some interesting banana and green tea plants as well. We will continue to investigate and bring you exotic plants as they become available from diverse greenhouses.
Seedlings are a great gift for the coffee aficionado! Below are some easy tips to take good care of your coffee seedling:
- the soil needs to stay moist, but not soaking wet
- Good drainage
- Indirect sunlight
Did you know that the same plant that grows coffee beans also makes a great houseplant? Considered to be among the easiest and hardiest of houseplants, coffee plant is great for both experienced and beginner gardeners. Not only is coffee plant care easy, but the plant itself is lovely and makes a wonderful addition to the home.
Coffee 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.). Keep them away from drafts in the winter. When growing coffee plants, the soil needs to stay moist, but not soaking wet. Also, make sure that both the soil and the pot 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 houseplants, a coffee plant will need less water in the winter than in the summer.
