Add Leftover Morning Coffee To Houseplants



 8611 

Didn't finish your morning coffee?
Give it to your houseplants.

When you fix that one cup of morning Joe that you look forward to every day and then get interrupted and it doesn't get finished.  Don't pour it down the drain, because someone in your house can still use it.

Coffee is helpful to your potted houseplants, adding nutrients and minerals to the potting soil.  It contains nitrogen, potassium and magnesium which can help your plant as much as fertilizer.

Some obvious tips are to let the coffee cool to room temperature. You potted houseplants do not want or can use hot coffee which would damaged the potted plants roots.  Secondly use black coffee.  The healthy plants don't want or need any additives like cream or half & half.  You can always dilute the coffee with water to tone it down a bit.  The container with plants will thank you for that!

Lasty, try not to do this long term on a regular basis.  In doing so it could thru the pH balance of the potting soil off and kill your plant.  You can always use a pH monitor to check this.

This is a fun and useful way to use your left over coffee.  Just proceed with caution.
