I have a coleus plant that I brought in for the winter and put in a south window
-- I've done this before and coleus do really well like that.
Ok, so I cut back the plant considerably and it's now about 8" tall with what
has become a woody stem about 1/2" diameter with a LOT of new growth starting to
pierce out of that woody stem.
So, I guess, in essence what I created by my cutting back the plant and not
letting it flower, is bonsai?
I know the process can be complicated in it's technique but can it also be as
easy as what I just described?
I did google "coleus bonsai" and yes, it's a plant that will work.
I wonder what other plants (not bonsai trees) will do this? Other colorful
annuals for example. ?
