I have a huge coleus in a tub container and want to know if I can divide it and plant them into smaller pots to easily move indoors for the winter.

RE: dividing coleus

Right, technically you can't divide something that only has 1 stem. But I do this every year, just before the first frost. I cut off every decent stem and put in water, place in bright windowsill, replant in spring. Remove all leaves that would be submerged.

A few Coleus (and other) cuttings saved and replanted this spring, about 8 plants.
