Rooting Coleus

image

The coleus plants were so pretty  that we wanted to save some for next year.

image

This one is nice!

image

We cut some off of the plants and trimmed off the leaves.

image

We put one in a clay pot with water.

image

Some of the cuttings are in a clear glass jar with water.

 

image

We put some in a mix of half perlite and half potting soil.

image

We even put one in a bottle!

image

Now their all sitting together in the sun in our kitchen.

We’re looking forward to learning about which coleus cuttings grow roots first!
