Some indoor and outdoor plants can be rooted directly in soil.

I am amazed how easy this is with some plants. My favorite is sweet potato vine. I just buy one and keep clipping.

Coleus can also be rooted this way. Smiling

That's the easiest plant I have ever rooted. I have had 100% success, even when I used only one node. Roots are usually visible within 24 hours in warm weather.

Montauk Daisy and Ajania Pacifica are as well. Because they need trimming late spring early summer cuttings are abundant. I strip the lower leaves, make a mud puddle and stick em in.

I constantly use this method to root plants. If I have never tried a particular plant that way --- even if it is not reputed to work with that plant --- I try it anyway. It often works.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I do this every year with coleus and it works very well. It's also easy to start pelargonium.

I've been doing Wandering Jew.
Good to learn about coleus.
I'll experiment more often - it's only a cutting, after all....

Can you keep coleus over winter in the house. I wonder if it is too late to root two that I just bought to grow this summer??

You can definitely keep it over winter in a jar OR in the soil.
No, it's not too late to take cuttings.
Rooting time I can't estimate.
Maybe someone else can.

They'll grow in the house in winter with adequate light. At my house, I need to use florescent light.
