my first rose cuttings rooted in water
I took these cuttings about a month ago, from dormant bushes. One is a single petal white, tiny stemmed cuttings, rooted at the lowest node in water w/ rootone, glass vase in east window.
The other from a bigger rambling rose w/ delicate pink flowers that get 3-4 inches across. Buds have become stems w/ leaves, no sign of roots yet. They are in glass, north window, w/ rootone also. How long could it be b/4 I get roots?
I made "grafting cuttings". An older friend, who is 88 took a cutting w/ "tail" from one of my roses I took her in Nov. & it rooted in plain water in less than 3 weeks. She helped her father do grafting on the farm. I am thinking of taking cuttings from this same bush now to see if they will root for me.
I have done layering in the past from older rose bushes.
