I love Coleus!!! These are currently on my porch for the spring/summer. I'm thinking I'll take them in when it gets below freezing and see how long I can keep them alive during the winter. Can you do that with these? Also, a sweet potato vine because it's pretty!! πŸ’œ

Hi! Yes, you can overwinter coleus indoors, we did it at my office and it’s still thriving. We decided to leave it in the window since it’s so happy there πŸ’š
@BabeVila , oh yay! Thank you. That's so exciting, I really πŸ’œ their foliage so I would love to keep them alive for as long as I can! I will pot them up and bring them in when it gets too cold! 😁
This plant is one of my unfortunate losses! It was doing so well and one morning it just drooped sideways and melted. This is the reason I can’t ever let them know I like them. Because they will die to spite me πŸ˜‚
@TheOddAsity , yes they are so pretty, but I dare not say it around them! 🀭
It is totally managable keeping them indoors over winter.😊 Just remember to water πŸ˜† Although their colour might fade and they will become more flimsy during winter due to less light and still high temperature indoor. But it is just to give them a massive haircut in spring and they will get new healty growth in no time😊

I tried both having some in my livingroom and some in a spare bedroom with a cooler temperature and grow light. Both went fine, the ones in the cooler room (13-15 celsius) needed less watering only😊

It is also common to just take cuttings of the plants indoor during winter for new plants next season🌱 They root very easily in water.
@MockingJay , oh that is good to know! I'll be trying that this winter.
