I've never tried rooting coleus in water, but your photo inspires me. Will you eventually plant the rooted cuttings in soil? I'm going to try this method, thanks to you.
LOVE the chicken planter!!!

I've been doing this for years. Yes to your question. I do plant them in soil as the water root system gets quite big. If the plant gets too big in the the soil, I again clip it, start rooting it in water, and keep the plant size in control until it's ready to go outside. That window is a northside facing window in my laundry room; the plants don't need heavy sunny exposure. They do drink a lot of water, so you have to keep an eye on that or have a good size container.
