How to Plant Coleus Seeds
Sow coleus seed in cell packs or flats, use a sterilized soil-less mix. Press seeds into soil, do not cover. Needs light to germinate. Kept at 70-75°F., germination is in 10-14 days. Transplant seedlings of dwarf coleus into the garden 6-9 inches apart. Plant larger coleus varieties 8-12 inches apart.
Growing coleus: Part sun to filtered shade. Rich, moist soil. The 'Versa' series of coleus tolerates full sun in most areas, prefers part shade in low humidity climates of the Western United States. Removing flowers as they form keeps foliage healthy and growing. Near the end of the season, allow some of the nectar-rich flowers to form; they attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Coleus are excellent container plants.
