Annual plants are usually not grown during the cold period; as autumn arrives we can uproot them and save the seeds for the year after. The Coleus blumei needs a minimum temperature superior to 15°C, during this time of the year it is best to check the night temperatures before setting it outside.For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Coleus blumei in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.
Watering Coleus blumei
As autumn comes these plants tend to perish, we can diminish the waterings, or even interrupt them. We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 2-3 glasses of water every 1-2 weeks .
Fertilization Coleus blumei
When we prepare the soil to welcome our annuals, in the apring or at the beginning of the summer, let’s add a good quantity of manure, or slow release granular fertilizer. To improve the flowering we can also give it specific fertilizations for flowering or green plants, mixed with the irrigating water, every 20-30 days.

Treatments Coleus blumei
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.
Soil Coleus blumei
Let’s grow these plants in a soft and dissolved, but well drained, soil.
Notes Coleus blumei
