Coleus plant

Zone Spencer Ma | Anonymous added on March 15, 2018 | Answered

I have a coleus that is dark purple that the leaves close at night if I water it to much the leaves hang over the pot so I stop watering it and they come back up But lately it has been hanging over the pot and even though I don't water it or I do doesn't seem to matter. I have been keeping it in a glass door window so that it would get the sun but when I touch the leaves they feel cold do you think thats why it may die? I've had it for maybe 2 years and it is in the same pot it is so big I don;t know how to get it out of the pot without killing it. Thank you

You may need to repot your plant and use a good commercial potting mix. Choose a pot that is just one size larger then the existing pot.
