Hi, I have a year old coffee plant grown from coffee bean indoors in a pot
I've attached a picture.
It looks fairly healthy in color and growth but the leaves have a
Funny curl to them, can anyone tell me if its a problem or
if I should just leave it and see what happens?
Thanks in advance

That waviness is normal. I had one that I grew to about a foot, when it blossomed I hand pollinated and got 8 coffee beans. I roasted them and made the world's smallest cup of coffee. Just watch out for pests like spider mites. Good luck with yours.

AMAZING! I had no idea coffee plants could be grown from the beans - not sure why I thought that! Your plant is beautiful!

From blossoms to picking the red berries was probably 5 months. They like 65-75F temperatures. I fertilized with MiracleGro weekly, and kept it in a western facing window for afternoon sun. It was about 3 years old before it blossomed.
