Try a coffee plant...a plant easy to grow indoors and one that will provide fragrance and beauty as well as your very own coffee beans to roast and enjoy. Coffee likes soil that is moist and rich and well drained. You can keep the soil constantly moist, just not soggy. A coffee plant is evergreen eventually growing to 5 to 8 feet tall if you allow, though can easily be clipped to 3 to 4 feet and still expect decent bean production. Provide bright light while indoors, though not necessarily direct sunlight. Diffused sunlight from a window would be great. If grown outdoors, partial shade is recommended if in extreme summer locale. Do feed regularly as they grow, as a consistent accessibility to nutrients does help them load up with leaves and flowers. Thanksgiving Coffee company from Northern California states, 'Rose food is my favorite coffee food but try to stay as organic as you can. It effects the flavor of the coffee you will be getting...' Do up-size your coffee plant to larger containers as it matures, as allowing a deep and extensive root system to develop is important. Soon you will see flowers, flowers that will fill your home with the sweet aroma of orange and jasmine, a treat unto itself! After about a month, the flowers will drop and the coffee 'cherry' will form next. Coffee is self fertile. The coffee beans or 'cherries' ripen slowly, so give them time on the plant, usually 5-6 months. Time to pick the fruit after they turn from green to light pink, then to 'cherry red' then to a dark red. As far as water and temperature, knowing that most coffee is grown in the tropics, try to mimic these conditions as best you can. Aim for mild to moderate conditions, but a coffee plant can take light frost if for short duration. When you do irrigate, warm the water first (if you can, if not no worries), as this will more closely match the water the coffee tree is used to getting back home from a nice tropical cloud burst. Give this plant a try! If you don't quite make it to 'beans', the fragrance and beauty of the plant itself is well worth the journey. Shipped potted in soil for best results.
