Rose Cuttings Have Rooted! Which Pot to Use?

lellisJune 25, 2013

I'm thrilled that most of my cuttings have successfully rooted! I plan to share this very special rose (Seven Sisters) with my mom and sisters.

Here's my concern: I want to pot them up in something that will give them the best chance to thrive, but I'd like the pots to be somewhat attractive. Would clay pots work?
It's obviously more important that the roses survive and thrive, so if I need to put them in those unfortunate-looking black plastic containers I will :)

Thanks in advance for your advice! Love these threads.

Clay pots will work fine. Just remember that water evaporates faster from clay pots vs. plastic pots so water often. Also, when you're hardening off the cuttings put clear plastic bags over them like the type you put produce in at the grocery store so they don't dry out. You can prop up the bags with chopsticks or bbq skewers so the plastic doesn't stick to the leaves.
