If you've been growing your Erythroxylaceae (coca plant) indoors for 7 years, I think you're probably doing everything right. These plants need lots of light and lots of humidity in order to grow well, as well as occasional pruning to keep it full and bushy. Prune it back after it finishes flowering. Aside from the above, coca plants don't have any specific indoor growing requirements.
