After the bud appeared on the vending shoot, take the pruner and cut off a piece of a branch 5-8 cm long. The stem is taken from the middle part of the branch. It should have 2-3 buds.


The lower cut is made at an angle of 45 degrees, andThe upper one is 90 degrees. Remove the lower leaves to reduce the evaporation of moisture. Now it is necessary to place the cuttings in the nutrient solution of heteroauxin (rootstock) for a day, lowering the lower part 4-5 cm into it. The temperature of the solution should be slightly warm (28-32 ° C).

Cuttings of roses in water


Further, rooting occurs also in water. It is poured into the jar, into which the lower parts of the shoots drop for 2-3 weeks. The container should not be in the sun, half-shade will do. Every day or every other day, carefully pour out the old one and pour new water.


When the roots of the future cuttings appear on the ends of the cuttings in the form of a light ball, then it is necessary to wait another week for the roots to appear. Then you need to sell the planting material to the ground.

If the bottle is rectangular 5-liter, then the stalk is planted in the soil directly and only the bottom is cut from the container. When the weather is warm, the cork from the bottle is removed. On cool days and at night it is not removed.
