Coleus scutellarioides, commonly known as Coleus or Painted Nettle, is a tropical evergreen perennial that has been a popular foliage plant since Victorian times. It has been diligently hybridized over the years into an immeasurable number of leaf colour combinations and forms.
Cultivar 'Peter's Wonder' has bright green foliage, pale yellow at the veins, and reddish pink on its frilly edges. It looks great in a landscape or in containers.
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 temperatures between 18-30°C.
Fertilizer: An all-purpose, water-soluble balanced fertilizer that contains an equal amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (e.g. N-P-K: 15-15-15 +TE) will help to boost the 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.
