The Q&A Archives: Nicoletta Foilage

Question: I love this shady plant. Is it an anuual or perennial, and can it be grown inside ? Thanks, christina

Answer: Nicoletta (Plectranthus) is related to Coleus and sold as a garden annual because it is frost tender. You can grow Nicoletta indoors under bright, indirect light and it will be a happy perennial. Provide well draining soil, water as the top of the soil begins to dry out, and fertilize every 6 weeks with a diluted liquid fertilizer. Enjoy!
