And when Calceolaria integrifolia 'Kentish Hero' failed to thrive throughout the summer, I gave him a second chance as a houseplant. I'd ordered this tender perennial from Flowers by the Sea to go with some Salvia.

|Plectranthus 'Cerveza 'n Lime'|
Plectranthus is one of the easiest plants to grow from a cutting. I just made sure there was one place on the stem where the leaves grow (called a node), after removing leaves, in the soil. There is a great guide to New Plants From Cuttings from Purdue Cooperative Extension that illustrates this.
