For cultivation-use only fresh corn, because during storage they quickly lose their germination – during the year it is reduced by 5-7%. If possible, take the seeds already fruiting, well-developed trees. The seeds should be well ripened and have no defects. Definitely stratificate them in a weak solution of potassium permanganate.
Prepare the soil in its composition should be sod (40%), leaf (30%) land, peat (10%) and river sand (10%). Grain place to a depth of 1-1. 5 cm, place them down on a flat surface to speed germination. Cover the pot with a glass jar or plastic wrap. Remove them twice a week for 3-4 hours. It is necessary to ventilate the soil and prevent rotting of the seeds. The pot is put in a dark place and the temperature it maintain 20-25 degrees, constantly moisturize the soil, watering only warm water.
Five to six weeks you will have seedlings. Move the pot in a bright place but not under direct sunlight. Constantly moisten the soil and spray the seedlings every morning and evening.

In that case, if you want to form a coffee Bush, select 3-4 seedlings.
Transplant the seedlings into a permanent pot to a depth of 2-3 cm Make in the prepared soil of a long pointed stick hole and drop in it the roots of the sapling, trying to keep the taproot was located vertically over the entire length. Not preobladaet the soil when watering so that the roots do not rot. In winter, use less water. Maintain a room temperature not below 16-18 degrees. If the temperature is above 30 degrees, the leaves may begin to curl and fall off.
The pot is put on the South-East or South-West-facing window, protect it from direct sunlight. If the light in the autumn-winter period will not be enough, you need to make a supplementary lighting.
In the summer, use a fertilizer for the soil, it is very good to fertilize it with ashes. It is possible to add fertilizer for the flowers. Once a year water dissolved in water Horny flour, it promotes growth and flowering of the coffee tree.
Best germination of seeds of Arabica coffee.
