Does coffee affect plant growth?
by Hashem Hijjawi
Does coffee affect plant growth? Does it kill the plant? Or make it grow at a faster rate. What effect does it have?
Yes, coffee grinds can certainly effect plant growth.
Far from killing your plants, the coffee will stimulate growth.
Coffee grinds are high in nitrogen, an element essential to plant growth and a major ingredient in commercial fertilizer.
You can either sprinkle the coffee grinds directly onto the soil, or add them to your compost bin or pile.
If you add them directly to the soil, keep in mind that coffee is also acidic, so you may also want to add something alkaline, like brown leaves.
I hope this information helps.
