Hi! I'm new to the coleus forum at Dave's. I'm interested in growing a coleus or two or three. . .lol indoors. Are certain varieties easier to grow as houseplants? I want something that doesn't grow bigger than about 14." Looking at varieties online, Alligator looked good to me. Also, Arizona Sunset, Careless Love, Fairway Mosiac and Kong Mosiac. Are any of these easy for indoor growing? I live in S. California and the plants would get anywhere from 3-6 hours of filtered west sun, depending on the time of year. But we have very few overcast days, year round.
I'd really appreciate any suggestions on varieties to start out with! I heard starters can be obtained in fall for growing indoors. Is this true? Thank you!
