Notes:

Now it has it’s own pot and is about two feet tall with dark and growing like a weed. I’d like to know what it is and something about it’s ‘care and feeding’. I don’t know if it should be transplanted outside or if it’s a house plant. It blooms small white flower clusters which turn into beautiful red berries. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    That possibly could be a coffee plant, Coffea arabica. It’s tropical, and the same one we get our morning brew from. They’re sold sometimes as novelty houseplants. (I’ve grown one before.) However as houseplants they rarely produce beans, but will flower. If it is coffee, pat yourself on the back for getting it to produce beans. It could be taken outside in the summer like other houseplants, but it could not survive winter in Duluth.
