Rooting of roses & other plant cuttings - Tricks
Construct "greenhouses" for the cuttings:
● Use empty liter soft drink bottles small pots or cups.
● Cut off the bottom of the bottle where the solid-colored section is joined to the clear section. Discard the bottom. Put the cap on the bottle, but do not tighten.
● Use pots which fit into the bottle bottom. The top of the bottle should just fit snugly inside the pot rim.
● Treat the cuttings using one of the basal or foliar methods. At this point you can use the Spray Drip Down Method directly in the bottle.
● Place the top from the soda bottle over the cuttings.
● Make sure that there are no gaps through which evaporation could occur.
● After a few hours check the bottles to make sure there is some moisture condensed on the inside of each. If not, your soil may not have been moist enough and a small amount of additional water should be added.
● Use large zip lock clear plastic food storage bags to create the greenhouse atmosphere.
● Fold the top of the bag down several inches in order to keep the zipper clean while filling the bag.
● Place some moist potting soil into the bag. Firm both soil and bag into a ball shape with a flattened bottom. Use a stick to poke a 2" deep hole in the soil not the plastic.
● Treat the cuttings using one of the basal or foliar methods. At this point you can use the Spray Drip Down Method directly in the bag.
● Unfold the top of the bag and close most of the zipper, leaving the last inch open. Inflate the bag to expand it then close the remaining length.
Taking care of the
● Place the bottles or bags in a bright light but not in direct sunlight as below. In the hot Summer keep in bright shade to prevent over heating the cuttings.
● After roots form in a few weeks, acclimate of the newly-rooted plants gradually.
● After the cuttings are rooted remove discontinue the mist or remove the cover. Harden them off for a few days by putting the pots in the shade in a cool place.
● Once the plants have adjusted to normal humidity they can be place in regular pots to continue their growth.
● After the plants have a good root system move them into brighter light, then, transplant to larger pots
