Arabian Coffee Plant
Arabian Coffee Plant care:
Coffee Arabica, also known as the Arabian coffee, "coffee shrub of Arabia", "mountain coffee", or "Arabica coffee", is a species of Coffee. Two to four years after planting, Coffee Arabica produces small, white, highly fragrant flowers. The sweet fragrance resembles the sweet smell of jasmine flowers. Flowers opening on sunny days result in the greatest numbers of berries. The flowers only last a few days, leaving behind only the thick, dark-green leaves. The berries then begin to appear. These are as dark green as the foliage, until they begin to ripen, at first to yellow and then light red and finally darkening to a glossy, deep red. At this point, they are called "cherries," which fruit they then resemble, and are ready for picking.
Coffee plants prefer bright, but indirect, light. This means that they should be placed near a window but not directly in the window itself. When growing coffee plants, the soil needs to stay moist, but not soaking wet. Also, make sure that both the soil and the pot your coffee plant is growing in has good drainage. The humidity around the plant will need to stay high as well. Like many houseplants, a coffee plant will need less water in the winter than in the summer. Your coffee plant care routine can also include light fertilizing with a balanced fertilizer once every to two-three months in the spring and summer.
