Watermelon Coleus Leaning Over???

kara.r.1July 14, 2012

I started a watermelon Coleus from seed and it is leaning over as iof it is a trailing plant. I am not sure if it supposed to do this. We had some trouble at our house with some plumbing and I was unable to attend to it for a couple weeks. Is it supposed to lean over and if not what can I do about it?

Trim some of the leaves on the "low side" to remove some of the weight. You could also trim it to a lower height (and treat the removed part as a cutting.)
