I grew Coleus from seed years ago. They grew pretty quickly if I remember right. It's probably just the time of year. They look like lovely robust little plants. They need plenty of light and pinch out the tips regularly to keep them bushy.

AJ,
You have even less excuse now.
Here's proof it can be done from someone who's doing it.
walltoall.
Sorry Spider that's just a private joke between AJ and me.
I love your seedlings and I love the clarity of your photo.
