GO GREEN: My plants are thriving from the coffee ground compost


After using the eco-friendly method turning coffee ground into compost to be used as fertiliser, my flower plants are thriving. You can find my previous post on the benefits and methods to recycle your coffee grounds here.


Previously, my flower plants was not growing at all and the leaves look dishevelled and dry. Don't even think about the flowers blooming. It was not a pretty sight and I was contemplating in throwing this plant away. This plant is known as the 'little bird flower' plant and its scientific name is Pedilanthus; origin from Indonesia.

Look at how my baby is growing now ever since I used the coffee ground compost. Look closely and you can see the black soil + coffee ground compost in the flower pot. The leaves are a healthy luscious green and the little birds are blossoming.



Even my 'fu gui hua' is benefiting from the coffee ground compost. After a week since I fed them with the eco-compost, they are flowering nicely. At this rate, I've got to replace their pots for them to grow bigger.

Try out this DIY home eco-freindly fertiliser for your plants. You have nothing to lose since coffee grounds are available at any coffee house for free or at a minimal charge. Your plants will appreciate and will return their thanks by blossoming healthily beautifying your home.

Recycle your coffee grounds.
