We thought we would share some more pics of MY GIANT coleus plant. Mom loves how velvety these look and they have always been one her favorite plants.
Now Mom actually grew these from seed and they were just those seeds you can pick up in the dollar store for 5 packets for a dollar and she was kind of surprised they actually even grew :).
She just put a whole packet in a pot and apart from water she hasn't done anything else to them - no fancy potting soil or fertilizer, just water and sunshine.
You can see how big the leaves are against Mom hand. The deep red one is by far the biggest but even the other colors are still a good size. Mom is going to let them 'run to seed' to see if she can grow some more next year and will be happy to share them if anyone wants to try growing them.
