I think this is where this should go, but forgive me if I am wrong.

I have a nice Coleus that I have taken cuttings of and rooted in water. The cuttings have nice roots, but I'm not sure how to plant them into soil. Any suggestions? I tried potting one already, but I got scared and put it back into water when the leaves and stem started wilting. Is this normal? Please help, I need all the help I can get!

anytime you root a plant in water, when you transfer it to soil, it will wilt a bit, but should spring back within a day or two. it is just transplant shock.

Thanks, I was worried a little bit. That makes it much better.

Try starting them in moist potting soil next time, they're almost foolproof!
