Questions on rooting basics

Posted by pjames 8/LA (My Page) on

I've rooted several other types of plants but never roses. When people talk about cuttings are they taking the greeenest ends, removing most of the leaves, or mid section hardwood. I have a miniature that has not gone dormant yet. I'd like to try to root it indoors. I'm figuring I'll set up some old aquariums I have as miniature indoor greenhouses. Any tips or comments?

Here is a thread with some excellent links to pages with instructions and photos, Good step-by-step instructions for propagating from cuttings?. The technique on Mel Hulse's page is commonly called "the Baggie method".
