Coleus Red Green – Plant
Coleus Red Green is a former genus of flowering plants in the family Lamiaceae. In recent classifications, the genus is no longer recognized, and the formerly included species are instead placed in the genera Plectranthus and Solenostemon.
Coleus is grown for its brilliant, glowing foliage rather than flowers. This is an outstanding mixture formulated to provide the best and brightest colors of medium-sized leaf varieties. Spectacular for beds and borders. Favorites during the Victorian period, they have made a dramatic comeback. It s easy to see why: no other plant offers such a dazzling variety of leaf colors, shapes, and patterns, and no other plant is so easy to grow.
The coleus seeds required Moist, well-drained soil with a pH of 5.6 – 7.5.
Light: Provide bright, indirect sunlight light for your Coleus Red Green plant. While it can tolerate some morning sun, avoid harsh afternoon sunlight which can scorch the leaves.
Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Adjust the frequency based on the plant’s needs and the surrounding humidity.
Soil: Use well-draining soil with good aeration. A mix of potting soil, perlite, and peat moss works well.
Fertilization: Feed your Coleus Red Green with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).
Pruning: Pinch or trim back the growing tips regularly to encourage bushier growth and prevent legginess.
