Coleus scutellarioides, commonly known as simply Coleus or the Painted Nettle, is a tropical evergreen perennial and a popular foliage plant since Victorian times. It has been diligently hybridised over the years, which has resulted in the proliferation of cultivars that boast countless leaf colour combinations and forms.

Cultivar 'Saturn' has bright, lime green foliage with a red edge. It looks great in a landscape or in container.

Light: Place the plant in a well-ventilated area whereby it can receive around 6 hours of bright but indirect sunlight daily.

Water: Once or twice a day, water the plants thoroughly till excess water drains out of the pot.

Temperature: Plant tolerates temperature between 18-30°C.

Fertilizer: An all-purpose, water-soluble balanced fertilizer that contains equal amount of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (e.g. N-P-K: 15-15-15 +TE) will help to boost plant's overall health by feeding it every two weeks. Otherwise, a slow-release fertilizer (e.g. Osmocote) can be incorporated into the potting media, and to be replenished after about 2-3 months. Do follow the recommended dosage indicated on the fertilizer’s application instructions.
