Product Details

Highlights

Vicks Plant (Plectranthus tomentosa) is also known as Succulent Coleus or Cuban Oregano. It is a member of the mint family and has somewhat thin (but still succulent!) leaves. It's known for the minty, camphor fragrance of its leaves.

"Tomentose" refers to the fuzzy, velvety coating that covers the whole plant. The undersides of the leaves are lined with raised veins and the edges are scalloped. It also produces large quantities of showy, lavender blooms.

Vicks Plant is a soft succulent and needs protection from frost and heavy rains. Make sure it has well-draining pots and soil, lots of bright sun, and deep water (only when the soil is dry). It re-roots readily from stem cuttings (more info).
