From seed? Nice colours. Packet varieties seem to be limited in range tho, pity.

From cuttings inserted in soil.

Nice pot! That's Perilla 'Magilla.' Often mistaken for, and sold as, Coleus. A very cool plant because it looks so different in diff amounts of sun. In full sun, it will turn bronze. This is one of the plants I keep in water over winter. All kinds of critters like to munch on it outside, but it's not gotten aphids, spider mites or white flies like some of the other plants I've brought in to save.
