Are you sure what you have is coleus? These are annuals, which do not grow from bulbs. Here is more info on growing these plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/coleus/coleus-plant-care.htm Perhaps what you have are actually caladium bulbs (or tubers), which may sometimes look similar to coleus plants. If so, these articles should help with growing them:https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/caladium/when-to-plant-caladium-bulbs.htm, https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/caladium/caladium-plant-care.htm, https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/caladium/fancy-leaf-caladiums.htm
