Someone came and stripped the leaves off the stem of my coleus.It had deep red leaves with light green edges.The plant is about 18 inches it has about 7 inches of bare stem.The side branches were stripped also.What can I do about this?

I ws really heartbroken,so i brought it inside.But what can i do about this?Should i just go on and try to grow it as a standard?

I'll try to take a picture if needed.

A picture will help determine what the culprit is.

You can try topping it just above a node and it should send out new growth. You can also plant the top for another plant. By the description it sounds like the chocolate mint just in case you would like to know the name but without seeing it I can't be sure.
