Coffee is an easy indoors plant with shiny foliage. This particular form is very rare with variegated leaves and is propagated by grafting.
Plant it in fertile soil mixed with about 1/3 part perlite. Put it in bright light, but protect from the most hush direct sun.
Can be pruned radically in spring without any harm to keep attractive shape. Mature plant will bloom with white pleasantly scented flowers, which will then produce first green then turning red and almost black fruits/berries. Each berry contains two “beans” (seeds), which are roasted and ground to make your morning coffee drink.
Plant delivery from Thailand disclaimer
Please note that all plants are delivered from Thailand. Most countries have some strict custom rules on letting the plants in. Those rules are aimed to protect the wild flora of the export country (Thailand) as well as not letting plant diseases into the import country (your country). We can absolutely assure that all shipped plants are healthy and nursery grown only (no wild plants) and are shipped legally from Thailand. However the package will not be marked to contain plants. Otherwise it would be inevitably stopped and destroyed by your customs. Unfortunately custom rules on plant export are practically impossible to follow for small private buyers. By ordering you acknowledge and accept the risk of the package to be destroyed by the custom services of your country as well as possible inappropriate handling of the package by your mail service. Each order will receive the tracking number.
