Have you ever wanted to grow beautiful roses but thought it would take too long or be too difficult? Well, think again! We’re about to introduce you to a new method that will have you growing roses from cuttings in just 18 days. Yes, you read that right – 18 days!

Step 1: Gather Your Materials First things first, gather all the materials you’ll need:

  • Healthy rose cuttings (about 6 inches long)
  • Potting soil
  • Small pots or containers
  • Rooting hormone
  • Plastic bags or clear plastic cups
  • Watering can or spray bottle

Step 2: Prepare Your Cuttings Take your rose cuttings, making sure they’re about 6 inches long and have at least two sets of leaves. Trim off any flowers or buds, as these can divert energy away from root growth. Then, dip the cut end of each cutting into rooting hormone to encourage root development.

Step 3: Plant Your Cuttings Fill your small pots or containers with potting soil, then insert the cuttings into the soil, burying them about halfway. Make sure the soil is moist but not waterlogged.

Step 4: Create a Mini Greenhouse To create the perfect environment for root growth, cover each pot or container with a plastic bag or clear plastic cup. This will help retain moisture and humidity, mimicking a greenhouse effect.

Step 5: Provide Care and Maintenance Place your cuttings in a warm, bright location, but away from direct sunlight. Check the soil regularly to ensure it stays moist, but be careful not to overwater. You can mist the cuttings with water using a spray bottle to keep humidity levels up.

Step 6: Monitor Growth Over the next 18 days, keep an eye on your cuttings. You should start to see roots forming within the first week or so. Once roots have developed, you can remove the plastic covering and transplant your new rose plants into larger pots or into the garden.

And there you have it – a simple and speedy method for growing roses from cuttings in just 18 days! With a little patience and care, you’ll soon be enjoying beautiful blooms from your very own rose garden.
