Coffee Plant,Coffea arabica
The Coffee Plant will do well a spot that gets a medium amount of natural light. Overly bright, sunny, or warm windows should be avoided. Rotate the plant occasionally to encourage even growth.
The Coffee Plant prefers bright, indirect light. Never place the plant in direct sun, as the rays can scorch the leaves.
Water when the top inch of soil is dry. When watering, remove the plant from its decorative planter and water with fresh water lightly and slowly from above, allowing water to soak through to the roots, then tip out any excess water before returning the plant to its decorative planter. Water evenly so that the soil is damp, not soggy. The Coffee Plant will start to droop when she's ready for a watering. Clean the leaves by wiping them down with a damp cloth.
Does well at or slightly warmer than room temperature (between 60°F - 77°F). Cold temperatures or rooms with strong drafts should be avoided.
Prefers higher levels of humidity, around 75% or above. If the air around the plant is too dry, use a humidifier or occasionally mist the plant to increase humidity.
The plant can live happily in the provided grow pot for up to a year.

When your plant is ready to be repotted, you can follow our simple how-to guide.
