Coleus propagation under lights
I brought my coleus in for the winter and took a bunch of cuttings and placed them in moist soil. I did the same thing earlier in the summer and had great success getting them to root. However, now I'm doing the same thing indoors. I have a beautiful light stand set up that I got myself for Christmas a few years ago, but I don't know much about using it. I know coleus are generally shade plants, so how do I know how much light they need or what temperature to keep them at, or how humid they need to be? The light stand does have a plastic tent over it. Right now I have the lights about 2 inches above the tops of the cuttings and the timer is set for 8 hours each day.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Am I on the right track? I'm just hoping to have plants remaining by next spring to plant back outside. TIA.
