Coleus Wasabi

R32.99

Coleus, celebrated for its vivid and diverse foliage, remains a sought-after addition to both outdoor gardens and indoor plant collections. To nurture robust and visually appealing coleus plants, it’s essential to provide them with optimal growing conditions:

Light:

For indoor coleus, position them in areas with bright, indirect light to prevent leaf scorching from direct sunlight exposure. Outdoor coleus can tolerate some morning sun, but they generally prefer partial to full shade, especially in warmer climates. Excessive sun exposure may cause the vibrant colors of their leaves to fade.

Temperature:

Maintain moderate temperatures for coleus, ideally ranging between 21-37°C, shielding them from frost and chilly drafts.

Soil:

Utilize a well-draining potting mix or garden soil with excellent drainage. Aim for a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (around 6.0-7.0), which suits coleus preferences.

Watering:

Ensure consistent soil moisture without allowing it to become waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry, maintaining sufficient hydration without causing the plant to wilt. Coleus thrives in environments with relatively high humidity levels.

Fertilization:

Feed your coleus plants every 4-6 weeks throughout the growing season (spring to early fall) using a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer. Avoid excessive fertilization to prevent leggy growth and maintain vibrant foliage.

Pruning:

Regularly pinch or trim the tips of coleus stems to promote bushier growth and prevent leggedness. Remove any flower spikes that emerge, as coleus is primarily cultivated for its foliage rather than its blooms.

Container Cultivation:

Coleus adapts well to container gardening. Ensure pots have proper drainage to prevent overwatering and potential root rot issues. With suitable care and attention, coleus plants can thrive in container settings, adding vibrant splashes of color to any space.
