    I think people usually put them around plants that like acidic soil, like azaleas, blueberries etc. (although blueberries are so picky I'm not sure this enough, oh whatever we - me and my mom - grow blueberries in containers but yea the azeleas are getting coffee, they seem to be doing ok)
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Compost. However, I thank you for the reminder as I forgot that citrus like them. I have two lemon trees that will appreciate your advice.

    Composted here. I do let them dry out some on the counter first; with a filter full each day I found i was having problems with the compost being too moist.

    I compost the grounds and brown filter both. The paper disappears quickly. I suppose it would be too much to expect the residual caffeine to accelerate plant growth.

    For you composters - do you keep a bucket or something in the kitchen and toss stuff in there and then take it outside every few days?

    Yes, and we do empty it everyday. We use a big enamel stockpot with a lid and keep it on top of kitchen counter.

    pottery bowl on the kitchen counter with a plate over it and taken out almost daily. Mom keeps a plastic icecream bucket with lid under her kitchen sink. I'm afraid I'd forget about it.

    Plastic butter tub in the sink, dump every day or so. If I can't get to it I put it in the freezer overnight.
