Hard to kill this plant. Its not too fond of direct sunlight and will droop when its too hot from sunrays.
So easy to propagate by cuttings. Make a cut below a node with 6-8 leaves. Remove leaves from lower nodes leaving 4 leaves (can be more but probably best to trim some of the leaves in half so that the propagation doesnt struggle much to survive) Add rooting hormone (optional) to nodes then stick it in soil. Moisten soil with water and place in shaded area (direct sunlight stressed the plant). Wait for a week for plant to root then its good to go.
Some coleus can grow leaves up to 12 inches… prob more if i transferred it to a bigger pot or planted it directly to soil.

Great plant, just a little touchy. But easy to recover.

Coleus are both indoor and outdoor plants. They’re aesthetically pleasing and hardy. They have soft velvety leaves and come in a variety of spectacular colours.

I don’t know anything about this colius, I would like some information I keep it outside in a hanging basket, I water it but that’s it. If anyone could tell me more about it I’d appreciate it.

I’ve had the Coleus plants for approximately three months. They have grown fast in that time. I love the colourful leaves. Mine are positioned under a south facing roof window. I water and feed weekly.

I grew mine from seeds. My pic of mine are about 7 weeks old. Now they are starting to pickup on growth. It was fun starting them from seeds. Great project for me. I also grew hypoestes from seeds as well.
