In addition to having the coffee plant that will supply you with it with an incomparable flavor, as if that were not enough you can have its aroma impregnated throughout your garden or in the place where you want to place the plant. Do you want to know how to grow coffee at home? Pay attention and take note!
Find your coffee plant
First, you should look for a specialized store to be able to buy the right seeds that come from a recent harvest so that they can germinate without problems, because if they give you some seeds without taking this aspect into account, they may not grow or do not grow correctly. Although another option is to buy the already germinated plant and thus not have to wait for it to do so.
To start cultivating
To start with the cultivation you will have to place the seeds in the new cultivation land (if you do not pay attention to the soil and put another one that may have some remnant of fertilizer you can damage the seeds and the roots of the coffee plant). In the seed store they can advise you on the best soil but you can usually choose any porous soil that allows aeration.
The seeds must be placed inside the earth at a depth of 4 centimeters and your plant must always have a temperature of about 25ºC to favor its good growth.
Watering the coffee plant
Watering is a factor that you should take into account because the first watering should be generous and then make sure that the soil is not almost wet to avoid waterlogging since the plants could fall ill.
When to grow coffee
During the winter you will not have your coffee because you will have to grow it at this time or also at the beginning of spring (I advise you better this time since it is more conducive to germinate due to the temperatures). In a month you will have your plant grown and then you can place it inside your house or in your garden but with sun and shade. When it has flowers you will see how much beauty it gives off and what a pleasant aroma.
You should know that the coffee plant can be between 3 and 7 meters high but if you prune it properly you will have no problems keeping it inside your house and thus being able to adapt it to your home.
