Why is my coleus losing color?
Accordingly, why is my coleus fading?
The soil may be exhausted or the roots may be too crowded, or both. You will also need to keep it watered so that the soil is moist but not soggy or sopping wet. Over or underwatering watering can both cause drooping and browning.
Likewise, how often should I water my coleus? Soil that is too dense may cause the roots to rot. In hot months, coleus grown in pots outdoors will need watering once or twice a day. If they are grown indoors, watering every two or three days is usually sufficient unless the indoor air is especially dry.
One may also ask, how do you revive a dying coleus plant?
Insert a finger at least 1 inch deep in the soil to test the moisture level. Water the soil until it is evenly moist if it feels dry. Stop watering and allow the soil to dry out if it feels wet. Soil in containers dries out faster than in the ground, so container-grown coleus require more frequent watering.
What colors are coleus?
The colorful leaves come in many shades of purple, red, orange, pink, green and yellow — just about every color except blue — in dozens of patterns, shapes and sizes, from tiny, spotted and marbled to gigantic, toothed, lobed and divided. They come in upright form, mounding, creeping and trailing.
