- Inventory on the way
The coffee plant (Coffea arabica) has attractive, glossy leaves and makes a great house or patio plant. Grow your own delectable coffee beans in just a few short years.
• Average mature height: 16-40 feet
• Container growing: Coffee can be trimmed to keep it almost any size. Frequent pinching back will make its growth compact and full.
• Fertilizer: Use a slow-release fertilizer once or twice a year. For faster growth, fertilize more frequently.
• Light: Bright. If grown indoors, provide as much light as possible.
• Soil: Well-drained. Will not tolerate excessively wet soil.
• Water: Coffea arabica quickly wilts when totally dried but recovers quickly when watered. Do not let water sit in its saucer for extended periods.
• Zones: 9b-10 (prefers high humidity)
A baby plant, that is 3-8 inches tall, will arrive at your home in a 3-inch-deep pot. Then, raise your new baby to maturity under your caring, green thumb.
