Q.What Kind Of Soil And Container Should I Use
I just received my first coffee plant and from it’s condition it’s suffering from lack of sun and warmth. It was sent to me from Texas and so it’s drooping after one day of sitting in my house. I was not sure even how to prep it to maintain a good transfer. I was told to put in a container with holes, of which I have done, but other than that, nothing for giving it moisture. Please help me save it

They need to be kept moist, but not wet. It may just need water. You can use an organic soil or one that is slightly acidic. Add crushed lava rock to aid drainage. A plastic pot will be easier to manage at the plant grows. When it becomes rootbound, transplant into a pot one inch wider than the previous pot.
