The Power of Caffeine

Months ago my niece and I made Terrariums.  Here's a little reminder picture with my cute niece.

She decided to take the larger Terrarium home with her and left me with this little guy.  I put him in my window above my sink.  I watered it approximately every other day with coffee.  I would just  dump any left over coffee in it in the morning and now look at it.

If only I looked that good from drinking coffee.

** I poured coffee in it because my MIL told me she use to dump left over coffee in some of her plants and they really like it.  One morning as I was pouring the left over coffee down the drain and  I remembered what she said.  I decided to pour  a little into the plant.  It started to grow and I just keep pouring coffee in it.  It really seems to like it.  I have some of the original plant outside that gets just water and the same sun as this and it is no were near the same size.


  1. with coffee? why? WOW! The plant looks great.

  2. WOW!! I've heard of coffee grounds for plants, but never tried coffee! Maybe that is why I have a black thumb!!

    Caffeine? Is that why my house plants are so sickly? WOW

  4. Holy Cow. Coffee who knew?????

    I think I will try this, oh wait I hardly ever have any left to dump, maybe I should make a little extra.
