Coffea (Coffee)

Coffee is a small genus with some 25 to 40 species, all native of tropical Africa, Madagascar and several other islands in the Indian Ocean. They usually grow as woody understory trees or shrubs in montane forests. The oval glossy leaves of the economically most important species Coffea arabica (Arabica), Coffea canephora (Robusta), Coffea liberica (Liberica), and Coffea dewevrei (Excelsa) are dark-green. They are easily raised in pots in any humus-rich, well drained substrate in a sunny (winter) to partially shaded (summer) spot. In winter reduce watering and keep plants at a minimum of some 15°C throughout the year. In cultivation plants will flower and fruit under suitable conditions, e. g. if grown in large pots in a winter garden.
Sow the bean-like seeds in any humus-rich, well drained substrate in a sunny spot at some 25°C to 30°C throughout the year. Carefully separate seedlings as soon as their second real pair of leaves unfolds.
