Growing in Coffee

oldwriter(z8 Central TX)April 15, 2005

I know that coffee grounds are good in composting as well as sprinkling around plants. How will plants that grow well in plain water (like certain ivy plants) do if they are grown in leftover regular liquid coffee?

The problem is the old coffee can mold if it is not changed. Furthermore, not all plants can tolerate coffee  you will have to experiment. I have not grown plants in coffee itself, but I have in coffee grounds. I have found there are many plants that can not tolerate it. Those that have tolerated the grounds are the more drought tolerant plants.
