I have some peices of a coleus rooting in water. How long do I leave them in the water before planting them in soil?

they root pretty fast unless are in a cool spot.you can root them when they have roots.its also a good way to have plants for the following season..root all the cuts and have your plants for next season.I would think 4 weeks in water was enough for roots to be formed and be planted up.

Hey Amber, I think njoynit is right, but you can also root them in potting soil easily------they just need alot of indirect light. Have a Great one! [wayey] Steph

Wait until the roots are at least an inch long before making the transfer to potting soil.

Excellent. They are almost an inch, I may leave them another week. You can't leave them in the water TOO long can you? I wouldn't think it would hurt them any.

No, too long (within reasonable limits) is not a problem.
