Hooray, it worked!!! I want to share my joy! My "gift" roses not only took root, but also let go of the leaves! Well, let's take everything in order!
In winter they gave me flowers - a bunch of roses! Of course, it can be called a bouquet with a stretch. There were only three charming roses in the bouquet. Winter bouquets are expensive! And of course, a bouquet of roses - my gift, carried a purely symbolic meaning - a tribute of respect and love.
The roses stood in the vase for a long time, apparently they were cut quite recently. As time passed, they began to fade. I was very sorry that the holiday for the soul was coming to an end. As always! Clever thoughts came fearfully! I decided to grow roses from cut cuttings - there was very little chance of success! My flowers stood in a vase for a very long time. I cut the cuttings from skinny stems and … Ta-ta !!!))) Now it will be the most interesting !!!
I remembered about my mother's "Troichetka" - a super active agent for germinating roses. After all, it was this tool that my mother used. And she, with any stunted rose, turned out to be an excellent stalk with roots. Well, why am I burning my mother's secret!
We take a teaspoon of honey, two teaspoons of aloe juice (aloe - the stem should lie in the refrigerator for at least a day), take a teaspoon of wood ash. We put all this in a glass - and pour a little more than half of water (settled - not from the tap!). We put our cuttings there for half a day, the worse the cutting, the longer it will need stimulation. Time has passed - we take out the cuttings and plant them in the substrate - humus-rich soil. Do not forget the stalk should have 2-3 live buds.
Planted? We cover with what we have at hand. These are cut bottles and even just a transparent bag. I took the package because the pot was big. Now we put the pot in a warm place - I put mine on the kitchen cabinet. From time to time we open the bag a little, let the cuttings breathe fresh air, just do not remove the bag completely.
When will the cutting awaken? It happens in different ways, it all depends on the temperature. The awakening of my cuttings began at the end of February.
A small excursion through the photo.
These are my tired and withered roses
Here are the chopped cuttings
And this photo was taken today - my pets, along with them cuttings of two more varieties of purchased roses. Leaves are dark green in color. The stem of the cuttings has become thicker - a sign that the plant is already receiving nourishment from the roots. A sight for sore eyes - cuttings.
I really wanted to take one cutting out of the soil and show how in past messages on cuttings - the root system. But, she did not risk it! You still have to wait a bit! Well, here are my dear friends, now you also know about my miracle remedy!
Troichetka is a great stimulant! Try the tool in action! Well, congratulate me on successful grafting!
