Coffea Arabica
    #1741302 - 07/23/03 03:31 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Coffee Tree
Coffea arabica

I?m growing this indoors, and I?m sure the conditions are far from ideal... this window gets light at sunset, but I have recently added a fluourescent fixture above the window, which I leave on at night time, so help ensure that this plant grows relatively upwards instead of curving drastically towards the window as the peppermint next to it seems to do...

Germination took approximately 1 month, and it was another 3 weeks before the seed coating fell off, exposing the first pair of leaves...

At this point, it has been about 7 months since germination:





In only 3 1/2 more years, it will start to produce berries, each containing 2 coffee beans (about 2-4 lbs/year), which I will roast personally... wish me luck! :smile:

Wow that's a slow grower.. then again, I don't know anything about growin' coffee.  Looks like you're committed though - soon you'll rival Starbucks :grin:

I have two plants. Both about a foot high and two years old. They are having some problems I need some advice for. One, some of the leaves have blight, and two some leaves are starting to turn white. I don't want to loose these babies. Hepme

Actually, it looks like i was calculating 2 years of age from the date of my original post, not the germination date. but it seems that its actually about 2.75 years now that i've gone back and done the math again... so if the plant likes me, it will probably be 1-1.5 years.

I've been trying to get more green coffee to test my roasting skills and get them up to par for when the plant starts to produce beans. Seems everyplace that will sell me green coffee is either far away, or charges a lot.

I heard it was actually cheaper to buy green and roast your own. Girlfriend brought this idea up to me a while ago, guess you can roast'em right in a popcorn popper.
