How to Grow Plectranthus
Transplant when seedlings are large enough to handle. Space 2-2.5' apart to make hedge rows.
Provide well-drained garden soil or potting mix. Let plants dry slightly between watering to
enhance silver leaf color. Plants thrive in full sun and tolerate part shade. Silver leaf color
is best in full sun. Plants do not need pinching to develop a nice bush.
