    Make sure that the soil is well draining. Too wet or too dry of soil can result in browning and dying leaves.

    Make sure the container soil is moist; you may need to water twice a day in temperatures above 85 degrees.

    Make sure you have the container in shade or dappled sunshine. Some morning sun with afternoon shade also can work for most Coleus.
