Water requirements Coffee plant - 15cm
As said, the Coffee plant is easy to take care of, the Coffee plant is not choosy about its location or watering. It is important that the soil is always slightly moist, in the summer months your Coffee Plant will need more water than in the winter months. We recommend that you water your Coffee Plant several times with small amounts of water, as it will be better able to absorb this than a large splash all at once. If your coffee plant develops brown leaf edges, this is often a sign of too much water. Check this by feeling the soil and reduce your watering. Keep a close eye on the soil (especially in the early days). The watering is different for each coffee plant and depends on a number of factors, such as: humidity, location and temperature. If you notice that the soil feels a little dry two days after watering, it's best to water a little more the next time. However, if you notice that the soil is still very wet after five days, then it is better to give less water the next time.
