About Lil' Painted Nettle

The Painted Nettle, is a feast for the eyes with its captivating display of vibrant colors and intricate patterns on its leaves. This fast-growing indoor plant will add a touch of magic and charm to your living spaces.

Native to Southeast Asia, the Coleus Space Cake thrives in warm and humid conditions, making it a perfect choice for indoor environments. Its unique foliage will create a stunning visual display and act as an enchanting focal point in any room.

As a fast grower, the Coleus Space Cake can reach a maximum height of 30-50cm, making it an ideal choice for those looking to add some vertical interest to their indoor plant collection. To maintain its compact and bushy appearance, consider pinching the tips of the plant regularly.

This delightful little houseplant loves bright, indirect sunlight, so placing it near a sunny window will ensure it flourishes. While it appreciates some humidity, avoid overwatering to prevent root rot. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings.

The Coleus Space Cake is a semi non-toxic plant, making it safe to have around pets and children. However, it's always best to keep any plant out of reach to prevent accidental ingestion as it may cause illness in dogs.
