Rose Cutting rooted in a week!

april105(7)May 29, 2011

I traded cuttings of Lady Banks and Zephirine last Monday and potted them up in 1 part sand, 1 part potting soil and a few handfulls of Perlite and put them in my mini greenhouse and one already has roots and the others have coullased over and are about to form roots any day. This is my first time rooting roses and I have read that it takes 4-6 weeks for roses to root so I was pretty shocked to see roots in less than a week!

That is pretty fast! Congratulations! You hit all the necessary conditions just right. I hope you can continue with that type of success. If you don't, try this method. It can callus the cuttings in two weeks, and I've had generous root balls form in one and two gallon pots in seven weeks from raw cutting. Kim
