Maintenance Alert

These plants do well in moderate to high light at temperatures of 18 to 25 ºC. If using artificial lighting, plants should receive 12 to 15 hours of light per day. Fertilize once a month with an all-purpose fertilizer-following package directions for mixing and diluting. We recommend a soil mix consisting of 30 to 40% peat-typical of most all-purpose potting mixes. Keep soil slightly moist (not wet) and mist plants weekly. For Coleus and geraniums, periodically pinching back stem tips will encourage fuller growth and also promote flowering.
