Having received a bouquet of gorgeous roses as a gift, you can always give them a second chance. Do not be surprised, there is a secret that can ensure their re-flowering in a month. By the way, roses planted in a flower pot will have a much longer life. And if desired, they can even be planted on a flower bed.
You still have to donate something, namely the length of the roses from the bouquet. Be sure to cut off the tip of the tail obliquely and get rid of the thorns and leaves on the nearby 3 buds. This must be done while the roses have not yet begun to fade and all the juices have not been pulled out of the stem.
We clean the resulting stalk from below, making a small indent from the extreme bud. And then liberally grease the bare trunk with natural honey.
Honey acts as a stimulant, promotes rapid rooting and provides the cutting with all the necessary trace elements, so it should not accidentally wear off during planting. Having filled the pot with earth mixture, we first make a hole with a thick stick, and then stick the stalk into the ground, lightly sprinkle it and tamp it.
Having cut the plastic bottle, we place the handle under the dome, having previously irrigated the ground. Do not forget to make sure that the soil does not dry out.
After 7-10 days, the buds on the handle will come to life and begin to release leaves. At this stage, it is important to moisturize the sprout twice a day and provide it with ventilation.
After 2.5-3 weeks, a bud will appear on the regrown stem. Right now we need to do the transshipment for the plants.
Cuttings planted in one pot with new buds will again become a bouquet, but now more durable. And this is just a month after pruning!
