Coleus Wasabi 15cm Pot

Coleus, known for its vibrant and colourful foliage, is a popular choice for gardens and indoor plant collections. To grow healthy and attractive coleus plants, you should provide them with the right growing conditions:

Indoor Coleus: When growing coleus indoors, place them in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
Outdoor Coleus: If growing coleus outdoors, they can tolerate some morning sun, but they generally prefer partial to full shade, especially in hot climates. Too much direct sun can fade the vibrant colours of the leaves.

Coleus prefers moderate temperatures. They do well in the range of 21-37°C. Protect them from frost and cold drafts.

Use a well-draining potting mix or garden soil with good drainage. A slightly acidic to neutral pH (around 6.0-7.0) is suitable for coleus.

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of the soil feels dry, but don’t let the plant wilt. Coleus prefers relatively high humidity levels.

Fertilise your coleus plants every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring through early fall) with a balanced, water-soluble fertiliser. Avoid over-fertilisation, as it can lead to leggy growth with less vibrant foliage.

Regularly pinch or trim back the tips of coleus stems to encourage bushier growth and prevent legginess. You can also remove any flower spikes that form, as coleus is typically grown for its foliage, not its flowers.

Container Growing
Coleus can thrive in containers. Make sure the pots have drainage holes to prevent overwatering and root rot.
