Sowing The Seed

Coleus seeds are best started in a controlled environment because of their size. It’s recommended to start indoors in peat pots, scattering the tiny seeds directly to the surface of the soil, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Transplant or direct sow outdoors when the weather is warm. (Light required for germination)

Growing Conditions

Coleus plants will enjoy an area that receives full sunlight in cooler regions, to partial shade in warmer regions. They prefer a light and rich soil. It is best to mix hard compact soil with compost to allow for better drainage. Water the seeds daily with a mist setting so that the soil is kept moist until germination occurs.

Germination & Growth

Coleus seeds will begin to show signs of life in as little as 5 days but average at around 7 to 14 days after sowing. Plants bare colorful foliage that grows to a mature height of about 18 to 30 inches tall. Space 12 to 18 inches apart. Coleus mixture is great in beds, borders and containers.
