Ever wondered where your coffee comes from? Meet Coffea Arabica, the Arabian Coffee plant! This bushy foliage plant makes a handsome house plant and a great talking point. While it’s unlikely to produce a crop of coffee beans in your home, it can still be enjoyed for its dark, deeply corrugated leaves and dense, bushy habit. In spring, it may even produce sweetly scented white flowers. Coffea enjoys a warm, humid atmosphere in a bright position, well away from scorching, direct sun. Height: 120cm (48”). Spread: 100cm (39”).


1 packet (30 seeds) (KB5909)

Sow at any time of year at 21-24C (70-75F), though best in spring to make most of the light levels. Soak seed for 48 hours prior to sowing. Set seed on the surface of compost and gently firm down. Seal in a polythene bag if no propagator is available. Do not exclude light as this aids germination, which can be erratic but usually takes 42-56 days. Aim to keep damp but not overly wet.

When large enough to handle, transplant several seedlings per 10cm (4”) pot, filled with multipurpose compost. Position in a warm room away from cold draughts and radiators, aiming for a constant temperature of 16°C (60°F). Coffee plants prefer a bright spot out of direct sunlight. Can also be grown in a warm greenhouse.

Water Coffea regularly, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between each watering. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Coffee plants appreciate a humid atmosphere - stand plants on a tray filled with pebbles and water. As the water evaporates it will increase humidity around the plant. Misting the foliage daily with a fine spray will also help to improve humidity.
