  • I have never heard of rose cutting rooting like some plants do. I have some house plants that do that. But not roses.

  • My grandmother used to tell me about how my great grandmother and greatgrandfather used to do it....
    she said they would take the rose cutting just underneath where a bud for a new stem would shoot from, and put it in the ground, water it, then place a glass mason jar over it.
    I don't know how effective this was, but i'm sure you could google it and someone out there in the www would be able to tell you! :)
    I know a lot of plants can be I don't doubt roses would be one of them! xoxoxo

  • I know I can get my "wild" rose to root by just burying part of the stem in the ground.

  • I remember a friend telling me to put the cuttings, no leaves on the, and younger shoots, cut end down in the soil, water and put a mason jar over each. Some of them will root, she said. In fact, she gave me some cuttings that she rooted like this.
