Can I propagate coleus from a leaf?

Bryan, TX

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..

Taylor Creek, FL(Zone 10a)

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

Thank you sugarweed. Will get them started. My first try at leaf propagation.
