Description

GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Coffea is a genus of flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae.
  • Coffea species are shrubs or small trees native to tropical and southern Africa and tropical Asia.
  • The seeds are coffee beans and are used to flavor various beverages and products.
  • The fruits, like the seeds, contain a large amount of caffeine, and have a distinct sweet taste and are often juiced.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • A rich, peat-based potting soil with excellent drainage is beneficial.
  • Coffee plants do not like limey soils, so if your plant is not thriving, add some organic matter like peat.
  • Coffee plants can grow in soil that has a pH of 4 to 7.
  • The ideal soil pH range is closer to 6 to 6.5.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Foliar spraying with Multi-K as a supplement to soil fertilization is the most effective way to improve potassium and nitrogen uptake by the coffee plant.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Coffee plants prefer bright, but indirect, light.
  • This means that they should be placed near a window but not directly in the window itself.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • When watering the coffee arabica plant, it is best to keep the soil moist but not soggy.
  • Use 1/3 of a cup of water, and pour near the base of the plant.
  • Adjust your watering amounts as the months' change.
  • One great thing about these plants is that the leaves are a big indication of when you need to water.
