This one with feather-like foliages is bred from seeds. I doubt that its parents could be some cultivars of the Carefree series although it looks like Under the Sea Bone Fish, which I have failed to preserve recently.
I have never purchased any similar cultivar with feather-like foliage (such as Kiwi Fern). It could be propagated as a sport from some cultivars with round stems, which were named as “Saber Series” before.
Bone Fish is a difficult one for me to preserve, I failed because it cannot get accustomed with the substratum I used before, I think I should use peat moss next time.
Your Bonefish and Red Coral look very good. I believe the roots of them thrive very well under the substratum you prepare for them.
As regards the center coleus, I think it is similar to this one(http://forums.plant-seeds.idv.tw//showthread.php?t=95072&page=13) , could be Copper, Burning Bush or Ruby Laser, I am not sure.
They are from last year. When I checked your link, it was in something i cannot read, like Korean.
I took cuttings over the winter and rooted them in water or perlite. A few I kept in small pots. I do not plant coleus in the ground, only in containers. I used purchased potting soil and added perlite or vermiculite to lighten it up a bit.
Thank you very much. Your information about adding perlite and vermiculite seems very helpful to me. I will do as you suggest next time.
