4.5″ Flower Pot
Plant Type: Perennial, but usually treated as an annual
Light: Shade to light. If the color is drained from the coleus plant’s leaves, it is getting too much sun. If the coleus plant begins to lose its leaves, it probably is not getting enough light.
Water: When it comes to watering the coleus plant, keep its potting soil moist but never soggy.
Fertilizer: To keep your coleus in its brightest colors, make sure to not fertilize too much. Provide a half dose of a water-soluble fertilizer on a regular basis (weekly or bi-weekly).
Temperature: The coleus plant grows best from 65 to 90 degrees, but it can survive down to about 40 degrees. This plant will not survive freezing temperatures, so overwinter your coleus plants indoors.
Pests and Diseases: Garden pests such as mealybugs, whiteflies, aphids, spider mites and slugs may attach your coleus plants. Coleus are generally resistant to diseases, but if you overwater your coleus, they may become susceptible to fungal diseases and root rot.
