Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant your coffee plant in a moist but well drained soil. They do not like wet feet so it is best to stand a planter on a tray of pepples which to maintain humidity, should not be allowed to dry out. They will not perform if temperatures are consistently below 18C and should be protected from cold drafts. Place in a bright position but not in direct sunlight.
