How do you take care of this remarkable plant mix?
Ficus is an easy houseplant. If this Ficus grows a bit wild around it, you can just prune the plant. Put the scissors in it!
Ficus also likes to get a sip of water once a week. We like to emphasize ‘sip’. Too much water will cause root rot!
The location of Ficus is everywhere where enough indirect sunlight can be found.
More about the care of Ficus can be found in our care manual.
Coffee plants originate from South Africa and the tropical regions of Asia. Although nowadays the coffee plant grows all over the world. As long as the area is warm enough!
Ideally, the coffee plant should be placed in a spot with indirect sunlight. Although you can also place the Coffea Arabica in direct sunlight. Attention! Do not do this immediately after purchase. First let the plant get used to the indirect sunlight and move the Coffea Arabica closer and closer to the window.
More about the care of the Coffea Arabica can be found in our care manual.

The Calathea with the nicest name: rufibarba means hairy feathers. With those nice, long wavy leaves they were once found in the wild of South America.
The leaves are light to gray-green on top and deep red on the underside.
You need some green fingers to understand the Calathea. The plant is quite demanding!
In nature Calatheas grow in the rainforest. Here the humidity is very high and the soil of the plant is always moist. In the Netherlands the Calathea therefore grows in a greenhouse. This way the plant maintains its high humidity.
It is best to give the Calathea Rufibarbara a spot with shade or half shade. Give the plant once a week what it sprays regularly with a plant sprayer.
