Many of my seedling trays are progressing and some varieties even after 6 weeks are showing their distinctive color scheme. I am not Educated well enough YET on all of the variety names but I have a very small range of
species variety. Something I will make an effort on as my Hobby progresses .
Primarily I have the deep Burgundy, Burgundy and green edge, Dark Green with Pink and Burgundy... And one of my favorite..what I describe as a pink & green Zebra striped variety.
I've separated & transplanted the largest and strongest looking plants into foam coffee cups and as each pod progresses will repeat. Although sustained safe warm temperatures are a ways away here in NJ I'm lucky to have the indoor Greenhouse and this Multi shelf RACK set up in front of my Bay Window which gets Spectacular Sustained sun ...more and more as we near Spring & Summer. These current Transplants seem to be thriving . I'm being very attentive to monitor soil moisture...not to much....never dry. I am very excited in my first crop and a spectacular Hobby!!! Thank you to all on this Forum for your comments and suggestions!!!!! Group hug

My local nursery here in Texas is already selling Coleus plantlings!!

They are selling for 2$ so I may have to cancel my Rosydawn order if they're that cheap!

This is just 2 days ago. My plants are loving this weather

I also pulled my overwintering coleus out of their pots and jars, made two large containers of different color coleus. Trying to go for fewer containers, large one instead of several small.
They are selling coleus seedlings already here too so I got two new; pictures coming in a couple days when they start to look nice.
Rosy dawn has a gorgeous Under The Sea Red Coral that I would love but $15 shipping is hard to swallow. Instead I spent $30 on a new shrub to replace a maple that has grown too tall.
