Rooting Coleus

Here’s what we were up to at Bass River last week! Michele

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

This one is nice!

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

We put one in a clay pot with water.

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!

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

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