I still have a couple of Coleus* Fairway on the windowsill at home that I grew from seed last year. They’re in five inch pots, have grown to around eight inches or so and continue to grow new leaves, and small flower spikes which I remove to prolong the show of foliage.
I’ll be sowing some more this year along with the variety Carefree, which has oak-like leaves, that I grew the previous year.
In the past I’ve tried to grow various indoor flowering plants from seed but never had any success. I’m trying again with Mimosa pudica Pink Sparkles, which didn’t germinate last year, along with Pentas lanceolata New Look and Senico cruentus Spring Glory. All these only grow to around ten inches which make them ideal for pots on my windowsills.
Fingers crossed and perhaps this year…
Have a good weekend!
