Preparing Your Roses

You will be able to recreate new rose plants using cuttings, and a plastic bottle, in only a few easy steps.

To begin, select a stem that has a faded flower, Shirley says this is preferable, not necessary, and a few sets of leaves.

You will then use clippers to cut underneath the node. Your cutting should be about 7-8 inches.

You cut the flower off and remove the lower leaves also. This will prevent the future rotting of your rose plant.

Caring For Your Plants

Another important step is to wound the base of the stem.

This prompts nutrients and hormones to heal it which activates root growth.

Be sure to have moist soil throughout the process. Shirley also uses a soda bottle as a mini greenhouse.

Once complete, you put your plant outside in a shaded area. Do not put it in direct sunlight, this is very important.

Watering Your Rose Plants

Check your plant daily and look for condensation. If there is no condensation, your rose plant needs water.

Shirley says that you will see roots at around the 4-week mark and flowers will be not much later.

Shirley is a wonderful instructor and her video tutorial below has a number of expert tips that you won’t want to miss.
