Coleus is a relatively easy to care for plant with stunning leaf colour variegation. It is so stunning that a Coleus was painted by the famous Vincent Van Gogh. With the right care they can grow extremely fast to grow into a large plant. This plant has been cared for by @theplantjourney on instagram.
“A little background story about this Coleus. I bought it for 99 cents at the local Salvation Army Thrift Store around September of 2016. It was a 5 inch tall clipping in a small plastic cup of soil. I kept it inside all fall and winter until spring when I brought it outside. I’ve repotted it 6 different times in the last 10 months.”
As you can see it is a very fast growing and resilient plant! If you are interested in growing your own, they are available here.
