Help with rose cutting?

A neighbour had these beautiful climbing roses - kinda a peachy/orange/pinkish colour - so of course I had to ask her for a few clippings to root. I put them all in cut off pop bottles with moist soil, put the bottles back together and now one of the clippings seems to be getting black spot on it. All the clippings were healthy when I got them. Is there anything I can do for the black spot? can I save this clipping? Where might I have gone wrong? The last clippings I did which were also my first 4 clippings ever all rooted well within 25 days so I'm not sure what I did wrong?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Try a little H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide), about 5 ml/ 100 of water.

Hey Steve,

Wanted to say thanks a bunch, black spot is almost completely cleared and great news - all three of these cuttings have rooted and have roughly 1 - 2 inches of new growth in less than 2 weeks!!!

Anyways thanks again

Correction - they all have new growth but no roots?????


RE: Help with rose cutting?

If the temp. is too hot (75F. and above) you will get a big blob of callus, new growth OK, but it may never root as it happened to me before I learned my lesson from the local Mini-Grower who has 20 years of experience. I never make cuttings any more when it's too hot.

The BEST temp. is 70 to 74 F.
