  • Average germination time

    7 to 15 days before your swinging from the vines
  • Light exposure

"Depending on the temperature and lighting, Coleus can develop a wide variety of colors (all while staying flamboyant)! Even if the leaves look delectable, Coleus is absolutely NON-EDIBLE. Also, it is possible that in cases of increased sensibility, Coleus' "hairy" leaves might cause an allergic reaction, similarly to other plants such as orchids and ficus." — Our mate the gardener

The seeds are organic* and the growth guaranteed

Agriculture Biologique Produit en France

Our seeds all come from French seed sellers. More than half of our seeds are organic. The substrate in which they grow is made from coconut peat and coir. The Pods are made out of bioplastic and are biodegradable: when your plants grow tired you can repot them or compost them.

includes all the ingredients needed to ensure the best growth possible for your plants: water, light, and nutrients. If your pod happens to be a little mischievous (which can happen, as with every other living product), we'll send you another pod! You can check out our FAQ for more information.

Système hydroponique

The pod

An innovative hydroponic system.

Thanks to our patented Float® design, you only have one thing to do: add water once every two or three weeks when the floater sinks. The plant takes all mineral salts it needs out of the water (these are released into the water over the weeks). Discover the Prêt à Pousser technology.

Questions /Answers about Coleus

Could you repeat the question please?

Questions /Answers

    • My Coleus isn't germinating!

      Coleus is very likely to germinate slower than its neighbours (this can take up to two weeks). Apart from that, if it is also next to a Basil -one of the fastest germinating plants-, it could look like your Mint is even slower. If you haven't seen anything happening in two weeks, don't hesitate to contact us in the "Assistance" section of this app.

    • Is my Coleus edible?

      Even if the leaves look sweet as candy, this plant is 100% non-edible!

    • Can Coleus cause an allergic reaction?

      It is possible that in cases of increased sensitivity, Coleus' "hairy" leaves might cause an allergic reaction, similarly to other plants such as orchids and ficus. If there's any trouble, do not hesitate to see a doctor and split up with your plant...
