I planted some lovely coleus this spring. Do coleus make good house plants? Can I pot up my plants and bring them indoors in the fall?

Coleus will grow all year 'round if provided bright light, occasional feeding, and regular watering. You might want to cut the plants back to a manageable size before potting them up. Then continue to pinch the growing tips to encourage a bushy growth habit, and remove the flower stems as they appear.
