How to trim a coleus?
I bought three coleus plants. They haven't been trimmed till date and are quite leggy. Here's a pic of one of them. This one stands erect while the other two are viney but the stems are semi hard - not like pothos. I want to make the plants bushy and compact. Can I straight away trim these and plant them in soil? I'm concerned because the stems are semi hard and not like soft tips from which I can take cuttings.
Also, I read somewhere that these plants are quite hardy and can be pruned down to the soil. Once I am done with my cuttings, can I prune the remaining to about 1 inch from the soil (roots intact) and expect these to grow again?
