Solenostemon scutellarioides Sun Chocolate. A perennial plant that grows in the open air as an annual plant. Height 30-35 cm, width 25-30 cm. Leaves of unique colors give it a special decorative effect. Coleus grows mainly on sunny or slightly shaded areas with light, fertile, acidified soils. It is grown through seedlings, which are sown in February in boxes, lightly sprinkled with sand. At a temperature of 20-22 ⁰C and constant humidity, the plants germinate in 14-18 days. Grown seedlings dive and pinch (the height of seedlings is not less than 10 cm) for better bush formation. They are planted on a permanent place in June. In autumn, the wheels can be transplanted into pots and transferred to a room. Used to design curbs or planted in arrays, combined with low-growth annuals.
