Adventure with a rooted rose bud
This is a very helpful place!
The little rose bush in the first photo is my first cutting success. You can see its first little bud. (Thank you Connie from Hartwood roses! You were very helpful here and on your site.) The second photo is that first bud which I clipped from it so that the new baby bush could get stronger roots. I hated to not see the first bud at least try to open, so I put it in a little jar and low and behold, a few weeks later.... roots! You can see them in the second photo. I had never seen roots grow from a cut rose in water. So interesting! I dipped it in rootone and potted it in my rooting mix. We'll see what happens. I wanted to ask here how to procede, but could not log on yesterday, so I just potted it anyway.
I am having fun propagating roses. Thanks to everyone here for all the great help.
