Ensure the coleus are planted in soil that is fertile &well-drained or roomy containers that hold moisture well. Be aware that coleus are not tolerant to colder temperatures so take note where you plant them that they are not in colder areas.
Mix a light application of a balanced organic fertiliser into the soil prior to planting. In midsummer, drench plants with a liquid plant food to stimulate new growth.
Caring for your Coleus
Coleus leaves are often splashed with shades of pink and red that can be used to echo the blossom colours of nearby flowers. Stem tip cuttings are easy to root in moist compost or plain water. Whiteflies are occasional pests outdoors. When coleus are brought indoors to grow as houseplants, they may attract mealybugs.
