Growing Roses

Over Christmas my husband gave me a dozen roses.  They were a gorgeous lilac type color.  I am very lucky in that my husband quite often brings home roses for me.  I soon realized they started sprouting leaves.







So... does anybody know if they will ever grow roots and grow into plants?

Please let me know!

I came home to a new dozen of roses... and my growing stems were in the trash!!!  Eeeeek!!!   I pulled them out.  Yes.  I pulled out rose stems from the trash.  :)  

I cut off the ends and put them into another vase (minus a few leaves).  I added some Miracle Grow soil and some perlite to the vase.  Why not?

The stems turned black and died.

I am not sad.  It's just it would have been kind of fun to say the plant grew from a stem.
I truly do not know what I would have done if they would have actually grown!  LOL  I have a pretty green thumb for those indoor plants, but those outdoor plants... that's a totally different story!
Ha!

  3. They sell a rooting hormone you can dip the ends into. :)

  4. Oh what a bummer. I enjoyed reading all the updates and was crossing my fingers that the roses would have a happy ending, with a new life. Well, I guess that's why roses can be so expensive -- not so easy to grow. From the looks of those stems, the original bouquet must have been real beauties!

  7. for the next time strip off all the leaves and pinch off the buds cut beneath the shield creating a slope of 45 degree angle the cuttings should be minimum of 6 to 8 inches long
    place them in a cool area in soil or pots where there is no sun it is the method for winter propagation if you use tea spread the left over tea water on them careful not to make soil too wet as it will make them rot
