Rooting Florist Roses For A Friend

18 years ago

Please help me if you can. I'm trying to root some florist roses for a friend. I brought home 3 from her dozen that were the droopiest looking. I know I've read quite a bit of info on this site about how to root florist roses, but now I can't find it. I've searched and I've checked the FAQs.

Since I can't find the info I want (maybe someone else can?) I'll just ask those who have rooted florist roses...Do you have better luck leaving them in the vase to root or putting them in a baggie w/ soil? I could set up a bubbler like folks do with Brugs (w/ an aquarium air stone) if that might help form roots faster. It's too cold here to put the roses outside yet.

If I should leave the roses in the vase, how often do I change the water? Where do I make the cut on the bottom of the stem and how much of the stem do I wound to get good roots?

I'd really like for my friend to have a plant from these roses, I know she would enjoy that.

Thanks so much for all of your help!
