Summer Cuttings

A few of my annual coleus got a little out of hand. They got snipped and I understand that rooting them is just a matter of putting them in water. It says you can use rooting hormone, but that would require a trip to the nursery, so off they go. Water it is.

Good luck little snippets!


  1. Nice! I love coleus, lots of varieties - and this is certainly one plant that roots very easily w/o any rooting compound, etc. While I think the flowers are pretty, I was always taught to snip 'em off, to encourage fuller growth.


  2. David is absolutely right about the flowers...
    you can probably leave them right in the vessel you have them rooting need for soil!!
