Share your coffee with your plants

One easy way to recycle your daily coffee grounds

If you are plants lover, you have a home plants in a pot, or garden, you’ve probably made all the research already, how to take care of them, what temperature is the best for, which soil to use… I know I did.

The plants can enjoy coffee, too

And if you also enjoy coffee, you definitely end up with lots of used coffee grounds that we are being thrown away daily.

Not anymore.

That thick layer of used coffee is very beneficial for my succulents, and any plants in general. The coffee grinds helps fertilize them as well as keep away slugs and bugs that would otherwise love to nibble on your precious succulents leaves. It also adds nitrogen to the compost.

Another benefit of using coffee grounds as a fertilizer is that it adds organic material to the soil, which improves drainage, water retention and aeration in the soil.

Fresh coffee grounds can be used as well, but no matter which way you pick, you’ll find that the coffee can give the plants the same boost that it’s giving you.

Enjoy your coffee
