@sara2309 it should do but prob not till next year. Lychee need chilling time to produce flowers and I wasn't brave enough to put mine outside this winter!! It's an air layered tree, not seed grown, so when it does produce fruit they will be good quality. It's from a place that supplies fruit trees to the fruit trade, cost me arm and a leg, so I hope it fruits!! 😃😃

@tina coffee plants are good as well. They don't need much light, so make good houseplants. Brugs love our cool summers!
