DescriptionAmboinicus is a large, fleshy, perennial plant which is highly aromatic and tends to branch easily. This plant has short, soft, erect hairs, with distinctive smelling leaves. Commonly known by the names indian borage and cuban oregano, amongst many others.The stem is fleshy, about 30–90 cm long, with long rigid hairs. The taste of this leaf is pleasantly aromatic with an agreeable and refreshing odour.Flowers are on a short stem and are pale purplish. One of the plectranthus species more tolerant of sun and planted as a medicinal herb.Coleus amboinicus does best in well-draining soil. A good soil will contain lots of organic matter such as coco coir as well as perlite or vermiculite to help with drainage.When the plant grows the most, fertilize with a granular slow-release, 5-5-5 (npk) fertilizer every three to four weeks, according to package instructions.Coleus amboinicus may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves without ample sunlight.Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.Trim away broken or dead leaves as necessary. And take cuttings regularly to use in your food,taking cuttings can also help the plant grow fuller instead of taller, and over time can even help it to spread and develop a vine-like trailing habit that would look nice spilling over the side of a hanging basket.
