Trying a new way - hydroponics.

caflowerluverNovember 26, 2012

Just built a home made set up with an air pump and container. I also have them in hydro cups so barely touching the water. There is a lot of helpful advice on the Hydroponics forum. I've always had limited success with all the other methods so thought I would try this. I am going to use it to root other plants as well. Anyone else try this with roses?

Nope, but I remember a LOT of posts about it some time ago. When I tried to re-read them, got a note they'd expired.

Please post your experiences.

I just started a bunch of cuttings this week. I need to get a aquarium heater because we just got a cold spell and it works better in warm water. I have it in a unheated garden shed. I will post in a couple of weeks to a month on how it is going.

Nothing was happening so I moved the cuttings from the garden shed to the warmer garage work shop. We were getting temps down in the low 30's at night (as low as 29!) and the water temp wasn't getting above 50. Moving it inside and getting a aquarium heater has helped to get it up to the mid to high 60's. With in 5 days I started getting callus and roots. I am also rooting brugs and plumeria. And I have a tub within a tub partly as insulation and to prevent any water accidents.
