This is just getting started but it is a clipping from a coffee plant that I rooted with rooting hormone. So far I pinched of the top leaves so that it would branch and then bent in with a twist tie. the green parts are still bendable but the brown parts are not.
Better photos will follow when the sun is up.

Here is the plant a 4 or 5 months later with the areas that were bent becoming more woody.
