ECANDI – Coleus ( S ) (Plectranthus scutellarioides)


Coleus is a petite houseplant grown almost exclusively for its bold, colorful foliage. Coleus plants are native to Asia and Australia and boast a variety of pigmented leaves, in shades of green, pink, white, cream, yellow, maroon, and purple. The plant is often started from seed around a month and a half before the last frost. It will grow rather quickly, often reaching mature, robust size in six to nine months. Their unique appearance and ease of care make them a popular houseplant choice for both novice and experienced gardeners.

Botanical Name: Plectranthus scutellarioides
Common Name: Coleus
Family: Lamiaceae
Plant Type: Herbaceous perennial
Plant Care: A coleus plant’s soil should never be allowed to dry out. To check and see if your plant is ready for a shower, stick your finger into the surface of the soil about two inches deep—if the soil you touch is dry, it’s time for watering. Coleus plants love bright light, though it’s best to avoid direct midday sunlight, which can scorch the delicate leaves. Your best bet is to find a windowsill or other spot in your home that gets direct sunlight in the morning and bright, filtered like in the afternoon.
Toxicity: Toxic to pets.
