ColorBlaze Lime Time Coleus Care
This easy to care for plant has average watering and fertilizing needs. Deadheading is not necessary. You can pinch off the flower spikes if you wish to keep the foliage in top shape. The plant will spend its energy continuing to produce leaves instead of flowers.
This plant is hardy in zones 10 to 11 outdoors. However, it is a great choice to bring indoors before your first frost for use as a houseplant. When moving plants indoors, select your healthiest looking plants and spray them with an insecticidal soap or neem oil to kill unwanted pests and avoid bringing them into your home. Place the container on a tray of pebbles and water to increase the humidity within the plant’s microclimate. Make sure the water level is below the bottom of the container to prevent root rot. Water regularly and fertilize in the spring when new growth begins. In the spring, slowly introduce your plant to the outdoors a few hours a day and plant it outdoors once the threat of frost has passed.
ColorBlaze Lime Time Coleus Spacing
In a garden bed, space plants 12 - 16 inches apart, center on center. They can be planted a minimum of 8 inches apart in a container to achieve a fuller look. They’ll look great combined with other foliage colored coleus or flowering plants.
