6in Coleus 'Kong' - purple/green
Coleus in a 6in nursery pot. Coleus are brightly colored leafy plants that can be grown indoors in very bright light and also make great container plants.
Light: Bright filtered light
Requires bright filtered or indirect light - direct sun will burn the thin leaves.
Keep soil constantly moist; never let it dry out. Water roughly once a week. Watering can be cut back during winter. Benefits from misting or a humidifier.
Soil: Well-draining soil
A mix of potting soil and perlite and orchid bark.
Toxicity Level: Toxic to animals if ingested.
Additional Information: Too much sun can fade the plant's colorful foliage, but too little can lead to less-than-vibrant hues. Pinch off the tops of flower buds to encourage foliage growth.
Plant Health: At Paraíso we go above and beyond to ensure our plants are healthy and ready to thrive indoors. We hand-spray every surface of each plant with organic cold-pressed Neem Oil. Neem is an organic horticultural oil that is a highly effective pest control and preventative. It's safe for humans and bees, and helps to ensure your plant's long-term health.
We strive for our plants to be the healthiest and most lush around because we care deeply about plant health.
