Topic: Grow my own? (8 msgs / 150 lines)
1) From: Joe Warner
Hi all,
I coworker gave me this planter that look's like a huge coffee cup and
saucer.  He gave it
to me for decoration in my CuppaJoe's cube but I was wondering if it would
be possible
to get an Arabica tree of some kind growing in it?
It sits on top of a small fridge that I keep my creamers in, directly under
a fluorescent
light.
I'd assume it wouldn't be as simple as planting some green beans would it?
I haven't taken any pictures for a while and don't have a picture of the
cup-planter but
here's a few shots from last Christmas:
Cheers
Joe

2) From: Bill
A start on the SM sitehttp://www.sweetmarias.com/growingcoffeeathome.htmlI'd like to hear from others, as well; I just had an acquaintance ask about
planting coffee.  I'm thinking that it would be cool to use Harar
seedstock...  I have a 10 lb bag coming in, and I was thinking of looking
through it for peaberries...  aren't those supposed to be better to use?
 Any thoughts?

I forgot what web site we got these off of but we have 5 kona plants growing
in the window at home. We had to re-pot them. Going on 18 inches tall. I
think they will get too big for the house. I believe we only paid about
12.50 each at 3 or 4 inchs tall.

5) From: Coffee
A friend, who knows I like Kona coffee, brought back a package of Kona  
coffee seeds from Hawaii. I haven't planted them. I definitely don't  
have a green thumb, plants and I have an understanding: I leave them  
alone, they leave me alone.

The web site / nursery where we got these was sending plants ready to be
potted.

Thanks everyone, ..never imagined that it would take that long
but at least it's possible.
I've often wondered how fun it would be, if I lived in the right climate, to
grow some out in my yard.  It would be a lot of work going from tree to
roaster but a lot of fun I'll bet.  Then, not only could I say I roasted my
own
but grew it too!
Yeah, won't quit my day job.  ;-)

8) From: Dave
I bought a coffee plant from the rare fruit growers at a local garden
show recently. It's about 15" tall pretty bushy, and has 1 very green
cherry on it. I planted next to the north side of the house to keep it
from full sun, and protect it from the 3 or 4 frost nights we get each
year. So far it's doing well, with plenty of new growth.
