Improved (?) MGleason and GMander Rose Propagation
First of all, thanks to both of these fine people for helping us all out with our rose cuttings! But...
Don't want to fuss with skewers, plastic or elastic? Get a Rubbermaid clear lid plastic box, dimensions about 10" wide by 10" deep by 16" long, and put your liltle rooting pots into them, put under the cool-white fluorescent shop lights, and wait patiently for success.
Two points: (1) You can cut off the little flanges on the lids (or the box, can't remember where they are, but they're about 1/4" to 1/2" wide) to make them easier to put on and take off. (2) There should be some condensation on the walls of the box, but no standing water at the bottom. Keep at temps recommended by Gleason and Mander (low to mid-70s);for me that means NO bottom heat)
