Coleus Mini-garden 'Tree' dying out in center
Why would my coleus be dying out in the center?
It is part of a fairy garden from a florist, but I knew when I bought it there would be some issues:
1. Shallow bonsai type planter with the coleus shaped like a tree and 12 inches tall... seems like it would want more root space.
2. The "fine gold leaf" stonecrop is a succulent and I feared that it would certainly have different watering needs than the coleus. It did die and I have since replaced it with baby's tears which has a watering need more in keeping with the coleus... but they all have suffered from the ordeal.
The stonecrop was the first to go. I never have figured the right water level for this planter, but it is darling!
Thoughts to keep this little thing happy and vigorous?
