Coffea Arabica is a great houseplant addition to any home! This plant has glossy dark green leaves, to help green up any space. After 3 or 4 years, your plant will begin to produce white star-shaped flowers, that have a lovely smell. If the flowers fruit, you will find inside the fruit two beans that can be roasted and ground up to make your morning cup of coffee. if however, you are just looking for a leafy green houseplant to add a little bit of the exotic to your home, look no further!
Coffea Arabica are relatively low-maintenance and easy to grow. Coffea plants like filtered indirect bright sunlight. Leave the soil to dry out in between watering. As with most plants, the leaves are the best indication as to how thirsty the plant is. If they are drooping, it is time for a watering! Coffea plants are prone to whitefly, scale and mealy bugs. If you find these pests on your plants, spray a soapy mixture for 2 weeks.

The Coffea plant is considered toxic especially to dogs and cats because of the caffeine in the fruit, leaves, and beans. It is best to keep this plant out of reach of your dog... but if you are concerned that your cat might jump up and have a nibble, this plant is sadly not for you. Why not try a Pilea instead?
