Hi everyone,

As you can see from the photo, the stem of my coleus is rotting. Should I just cut it off? Not sure what is the cause. Just re-potted it a few days ago.

Thank you

Yes, cut if off. It won't get better.

Thanks, @pirl! I just cut off the stem. Pretty rotten inside and had a peculiar odor. Also sprinkled some cinnamon …
