Aphids probably but they were too tiny to tell for sure. Aphids are another problem when it comes to the coleus plant. You can treat these insects by spraying them with water and then wiping off the plant. Another option is to spray the plants with an insecticide. Next year, apply pest counter measures before bringing the pots inside.
