Hey Altifarmers!! Here we come once again! This week we have yet another interesting experiment we tried out just for you. Surprised after reading the topic? I’m sure you are! Yes! Plants love coffee just as much as we do. Here’s how coffee is good for your plants.
Black coffee - before you pour your black coffee for your plants, make sure it is well diluted. It contains nitrogen which is good for the growth of plants. Use it only once a week. Keep checking the pH of your soil, as black coffee is slightly acidic. If you notice any negative changes in your plants then continue with just plain water.
Coffee grounds - recommended for houseplants that grow well in moist soil. Coffee grounds increase the moisture content of the soil. Make sure you compost the coffee grounds before using them for your houseplants. Do not use coffee grounds directly as they might lower the soil pH.
Plants like christmas cactus, pothos, jade, snake plant, spider plant, peace lilies, african violets, and miniature roses love coffee.
Do not use coffee for plants like succulents or calathea because there are chances that you might over-water them.
So garden lovers, have coffee with your plants once a week! If you have any other helpful tips, please let us know in the comments section below!
