new coleus cutting producing flowers

red5(z5Canada)March 11, 2004

I have recently started all my coleus cuttings.Now(and this has happened before),some of them have produced flowers.Is there anything I can do to either prevent it or stop it from flowering so early? The whole plant does not grow very well when this happens.Any ideas?

The only advice I can give you is to clip the bloom spikes off, you're absolutely correct, the blooms steal the vigor away from the leaves and roots.

cut off the bloom--this also helps to make it branch out---
