How to Plant COLEUS Seeds

Sow seed in cell packs or flats, using a sterilized soil-less mix. Press into soil but do not cover. Needs light to germinate. Kept at 70-75 ° F., germination is in 10-14 days. Transplant into the garden 6-9 inches apart.
Comments: Part sun to filtered shade, the 'Versa' series tolerates full sun in most areas, prefers part shade in low humidity areas of the west. Rich, moist soil. Remove flowers as they form to keep foliage healthy and growing. Allow some of the nectar-rich flowers to form near the end of the season, if you wish to be visited by hummingbirds and butterflies. Excellent container plants.
