GREENHOUSE: For early pot culture, sow in Dec. For bedding plant sales, sow Jan. 30th. - Mar. 15th. 1/32 oz/1 g sows approx. 4 (20 x 12 in/51 x 31 cm) flats at 700 - 800 seedlings per flat. Germinate at 70°F/21°C soil temp., for 7 - 10 days. Seed should be pressed lightly into the surface of the soil, and not covered as it requires light to germinate properly. Use luke warm water. Sow as thinly as possible, keep well ventilated, as coleus damps-off easily. Transplant in 15 days, not too deep. For richer colors, shade with cheesecloth. When transplanting mixtures, keep smaller plants to the outside edge of the box. Fringed types usually contain a percentage of plain leaf types, which should be rogued out.

HOME GARDEN: Sow outside June 1st., transplant in about 10 days, 8 in/20 cm apart. Pinch flower buds as they form. Re-pot best colors in Sept. before frost for ideal house plant during winter months.
