help, how long should cuttings be covered?
I am challenging myself to learn one new trick every year in gardening. I bought a new rose bush called Memorial Day and it had a thick branch broken. Not to waste the oppourtunity I cut it into 3- 5 inch pcs with two sets of leaves left. I put them in a small pot of peat moss and barely dampened the whole thing and put pot and all into a zip lock bag and placed in with my other plants in a south facing window. Now 4 weeks later two have rooted and one I threw out. How long should I leave these cuttings in the zip lock? It should not require a green-house environment for long once roots have formed or does the root ball need to fill the pot first? As you can tell I didn't do my research first, I just did what works with other stuff. I will do it differently from now on. Thank You.
