Growing Tips:

  • Prefers full shade but can take some partial shade

  • This combination of plants does best in warm summer temperatures

  • If Coleus start to flower, pinch them out

  • Plants like regular water. Keep moist but not soggy; allow soil to dry out a bit between waterings

  • Feed every two weeks with a water-soluble fertilizer. Hydrolyzed fish fertilizer mixed with kelp is a great water-soluble fertilizer combination
