Coleus cuttings

Zone 94704 | Chanel added on July 2, 2016 | Answered

I am growing a cutting of a coleus plant with leaves colored green on the topside and purple on the underside. Problem is, the new growth does not have this much desired purple color. Does this coloring take time to develop or am not treating my plant well? It is worth noting that the leaves get progressively curlier/droopy as they get higher on the stem. Thanks!

There are likely to be some color changes on the new growth from the older more mature growth of your plant.
