I can propagate coleus from cuttings, but a friend just gave me some leaves to propagate. Any help would be appreciated, and any suggestions for soil and should I cover them with plastic etc..
Thanks

Yes, use some potting soil and dust stems with rooting hormone, and barely stick them in that dirt. I have done it before.
