    about this plant

    This little baby Coffea Arabica has its origins in the wilds of Ethiopia. Rather like the supposed discovery of tea, the story goes that coffee was accidentally discovered by a herd of goats whose owner noticed that they were very alert after eating the berries from this little bush. Don't expect coffee beans from this nice little houseplant, but you’ll get plenty of fresh green shiny leaves. The Coffea Arabica is a plant that can happily be put in full sun.

    The baby Coffea Arabica loves sun and light, so you can put it on the windowsill. However, let her gradually get used to full sun by leaving her in the sun a little longer each day over the course of a fortnight, so not to shock her. Baby Coffea Arabica likes a bit of moisture in her soil, so make sure to give her a little water every week and once every fortnight a spray with the plant sprayer, as this will make her leaves shine.

    FR: Arrivé rapidement dans un emballage soigné. En bonne santé et de bonne taille! Sur les 8 tiges, il m'en reste 5. Les 3 plus petites n'ont pas tenu le coup. MAIS, je suis très contente et croise les doigts pour que dans quelques années je puisse boire mon propre café! :) EN: Arrived promptly in a neat package. Healthy and good size! I have 5 stems left out of the 8. The 3 smaller ones did not last. BUT, I am very happy and keep my fingers crossed that in a few years I will be able to drink my own coffee! :)

    I received it in perfect conditions, way better and bigger than in the picture. Coffee plants are very particular about their care, as they're very specific about soil, light and humidity: please, do keep this in mind before getting yourself one of these! I waited about two weeks after it arrived to transplant it to a slightly bigger pot, with some volcanic rocks added, and it has grown so fast that there are roots coming out of the bottom already, which is quite spectacular as these babies are not fast growers: it can take up to 5 years for a plant to fully mature and produce beans. Just keep that in mind if you're planning to grow coffee in case of a zombie apocalypse! :)

    I rate plnts very highly (I would like to very much make that clear!) but out of the 17 plants I ordered this was the only one that arrived in not such a good state, all of the stems are serverely shrivelled and an not sure if it’ll survive as it was a gift for someone so I can’t monitor. The leaves are healthy and the size of the plant was good but like I say the stems look shrillved possibly beyond repair but for one bad out of 17 plants that’s really not bad and I can get over that! It is also cold in UK now and it was in the post a little while so maybe that didn’t help. Anyway fingers crossed for this lil guy!
