Help with indoor Coleus

sissybabe(z9 nw az US)November 11, 2004

I bought a coleus in a 4 inch pot at home depot several months ago. It has now become long and leaves at the top not full below. I have started to clip the new top to increase lower foliage but still not working. Need someone who can help or someone with extensive info on coleus's. Have a pic of plant if it helps. Thanks!!

your indoor coleus could use some more light and to pinch the top growth tip. it will bush out a bit. Another option is to cut of the top couple of inches and root them in water and repot.

I also bought some really pretty coleus from Home Depot. They are growing beautifully, but they are growing straight up, about a foot tall, and not bushy. I guess I should have pinched them earlier. Can I cut them half way down the stem now, or is it too late?
