They look great! I wish I could use a greenhouse like that.

Wow, havent they grown well.I did not know you could take cuttings from Coleus.Here they are grown from seeds, as they germinate readily.They are beautiful colours though, but get thrown away after they get leggy..

How wonderful! I am planting a shade garden and decided I wanted loads of coleus. Instead of buying so many plants, I just bought 3 and took several cutings from each. The cutings are doing great. This is truly a perfect plant for growing from cuttings. I will be sharing a few with my neighbors.

Looking good, OldRoses! That makes me wish I could plant a whole tapestry of coleus in my garden...

Snappy, coleus are so easy to grow from cuttings. You just stick them in soil, keep them moist and they grow roots very quickly. Many people overwinter their coleus by taking cuttings in the fall.

Rusty, what kind of coleus are you growing that it does well in full sun?
