Coleus – Batch B

I started a new batch of Coleus from seed about two weeks ago. Yesterday I repotted them from their first home to individual cells. Some are already showing some color!

Below are the only survivors from my first batch. Really goes to show you that they are strong plants when they want to be because i did everything wrong the first time around.

Basic method is filling the potting cells with a good commercial potting soil and spreading the seeds on top. I then place the cells in a container with some water in it. Close it up with transparent film and leave under a bright light. They enjoy the humidity and moisture and grow in no time. Since these are all locally bought they seem to have the same patterns, however I am expecting a shipment from Amazon.com! Once those are in I’ll write a new post on the process and progress.
