This plant has beautiful, shiny leaves and grows well. I have it in my living room in bright indirect light and I water it once a week. It’s easy to care for and it’s a great indoor plant.

As this is a tropical and shade grown plant it tends to burn in direct sunlight. (RIP first coffee plant). Hoping my new one will thrive in dappled sun 5+ feet from the window!

This is my very first Arabian coffee plant. I decided to put it in the bathroom for moist and of course to beautify the small area.

This plant doesn’t grow very fast and requires a lot of humidity so pebble trays and/or humidifiers are a must!
