This unfussy genus in the Mint family is native from Africa to Asia and the Pacific Islands.
Plectranthus is a vigorous grower in full sun or partial shade (required in warm inland areas of the West) and evenly moist soil. Plants should not be allowed to dry out. Pinch as needed to keep bushy and compact in annual containers or beds.
Plectranthus grows well as a houseplant in bright, indirect light or partial sun. A day length of 12 hours or less promotes flowering. Day and night temperatures of 50-80°F are fine year round. Water when the top 1" of the potting mix is dry to the touch. Cut off flower stalks when their blooms have faded. About once a year, repot into a larger container (one that is 1-2" greater in diameter), using a well-drained potting mix.Local Delivery or Store Pickup Only
