Hi, I put almost 30 cuttings on water for 2 weeks until buds and little leaves came out from approximately 20 of them. I've put them on separate pots afterwards and gave them a little bit of water every day in order to maintain humid the soil but they are all drying to death! Do not know what to do! Anybody that could help? Not putting the bag as I have them inside with a room temperature around 73,4 F.
THANK YOU FOR THE INCREDIBLE ADVISE
can someone help me. I am trying to propagate roses and planted the stems around 5 weeks ago. The stems beautifully grew leaves etc on its own but today when I took out one stem, it has only grown a callus so far. So my question is how long does it take for the roots to grow? When I started I moistened the soil a bit at that time and since then never again. Each stem is in a pot surrounded by a ziplock bag tied to it. All stems are growing leaves. Should I start watering them more often? Would that mean I have to take the bag off every time and then tie it again? Hoping to find some answers from more experienced people.
i would replant in larger pots and add water every week
a lot of times, store bought flowers have pesticides that make them unable to regrow, which could be your problem
I normally have great success in my gardening, but growing roses from cuttings seems to be the bane of my existence. I have tried several times, with no success. The leaves and stems get moldy, whether I use an inverted plastic bottle or inflated plastic bag. It's very important to me that I get cuttings from family roses from a former home to grow in my new home, but I am running out of ideas. Any suggestions? Thanks!
never tried that in my experiments! Thanks for the idea
I would say to propagate from cuttings.... place in water about 1/4 way up from stem, and hope for best!
P.S. Don't forget to change out the water, after you have about an inch of roots, replant in soil.
My dog pulled up and chewed one of my rose bushes, it was a reasonably new one which I had not yet transplanted to the garden. I put the main bush back into dirt, because it had roots. I have placed another stem in water as you suggest, here's hoping it takes as it will give me two beautiful Tuscan roses it they survive.
Sorry for the typo -- I meant original "big" plant, not "bug" plant.
Thank you very much for the nice instructions, I followed them and got my six rose plants propagated successfully, well almost. One of the cuttings, grew some new leaves and started dying... I started watering it more frequently from the moment I noticed it, but no luck yet. Any idea why that could happen ? Any way to revive that now? Unfortunatey, I have already destroyed the original bug plants because I saw new leaves from these ones. Thanks much again.
