Coffee plant Coffea Arabica
Looking for something unique? Take care of your own coffee plant! Also nice to give as a gift to the biggest coffee lover you know.
Normally the coffee plant grows in tropical and warm temperate regions, where it grows into a big wild plant. This will be very easy at home and you should preferably put it in a large pot in a nice place, such as next to your espresso machine. Well in the windowsill, at least near a window so that it gets enough light. Not too much light right away! If your window faces south, it is best to let the plant 'get used' to sunlight by gradually putting it in more and more light. After 2 to 3 years the plant gets white flowers that give a nice sweet air, then the berries that are ripe come as they turn red. And those berries contain your home-grown coffee beans!
Shipping and packaging
The plant comes with the soil covered, in a special plant shipping tube. You should take care of the plant immediately after receipt, this will take a few minutes.
As an extra option with this product, you can choose to order a jute bag that fits exactly around the supplied plastic pot. You can see an example of this in the photos. The bags are handmade and supplied in several variants and types. Each bag is unique and you will therefore not receive the bag exactly as in the photo.

Taking care of your plant (less difficult than you think)
The Coffea Arabica grows well indoors, between 16 and 21 degrees. Do you want to keep him out? Then bring it in before autumn, the plant cannot tolerate temperatures below 12ºC. It likes to be in a bright environment such as by the window, but it does take some getting used to direct sunlight. That is why it is best to place it about three meters from the window and gradually move it towards the window until it is in the windowsill. In the summer it can also be left outside.
The soil should always be moist but not soaking wet, as it does not use a lot of water. It is therefore better to give it a little bit of water often than a whole splash in one go. The Coffea Arabica really likes a summer shower from time to time. Indoors, you can imitate this every now and then with a plant sprayer so that the leaves are well moistened. In the spring you give the plant some houseplant food every month. In winter, the plant is in 'resting mode' and does not require additional nutrition.
Is the plant getting bigger? Place it every 1 to 2 years in a larger pot or container so that it has room to grow further.
