How to care for your Coffee Plant
Use these instructions to care for a Coffee Plant. This guide will tell you how to water a Coffee Plant; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.
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.
Your Coffee Plant loves a humid environment. Make sure to give them a daily misting, or add a humidifier nearby. Browning leaves could be a sign of low humidity.
Coffee Plants prefer temperatures between 65–80°F.
Fertilize your Coffee Plant once a month during spring and summer with a liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength.
Coffee Plant leaves are toxic to both pets and humans.
Coffee plants don’t need much pruning, but you should do some trimming every spring to ensure thick growth for the coming year.
