    Coffee WORKS as a fertilizer.

    There have been some threads about this in the past, and on other forums, but I tested the water with my highland Truncata, and have now moved onto watering all my plants with some cold coffee after seeing these results. This leaf unfolded about 1.5-2 months after I watered the plant with coffee (the next new leaf.) Amazing results if you ask me. Post your experiences. If I notice increased leaf size on my other plants that drank some joe, I'll update.

    Yay another success story, a fellow member on the canadian Forum tried this on his macrophylla, its inclreased the growth rate, and healthier leaves. And according to him Live Sphagnum really accelerates growth. He posted some pics for proof and wow.

    A few other members have reported great success aswel!


    I hope ypu didn't mean permanently watering them with coffee.

    Cool!

    When you say coffee, do you mean black coffee (nothing in it), or a regular cup with cream and sugar?

    I do not do any rinsing. I water my plants usually 2-3 times a week. Say I water on M Tr Su. Once every other month I would replace one watering with a coffee watering, equal in amount to a water-watering. Make sense? Same amount of liquid, same watering schedule, just a simple replacement.
