Confused is there still a question open?

Yea, I just didn't understand why you said a cutting needed four eyes to be successful, scroll a few posts back and I copied your statement.

Yez, I am going to SLOWLLLLLY acclimate them? and if they don't make it?

next time I will pot the cuttings and put humidity dome over them ALREADY potted. And based off of my success rate (74%), I'll go on faith and know/assume I'll have the root again! They were red and yellow

@ bhart90 -- You might also try placing coffee grounds and cut up bannana peels around the base of the plant - roses love both of those.

Before and after, I gave a little TLC at our front yard, and have 7 rose bushes, glad bulbs, perrenial geranium, as well as hosts in back, with my cold hardy bamboo, might put it back in field for a Asian theme, but because I work so much, this is what I could do,
oh, and those are wood shavings from a 100 year old DEAD tree on top

Rolling on the floor laughing Porkpal the optimist.
Silky keeps her feathers so pretty with rosewater, not bugs! She's probably just admiring her reflection in the plastic covering. Pretty pretty girl... nodding

Ok, last night was 2nd night without humidity dome.

What would you do with these 2 in particular though.

So far, all appear alive too.

Hurray! I imagine they will try to bloom, but be sure to allow time for a good root system to grow before allowing blooms. They look very healthy I tip my hat to you.

Not going to lie Neal, I'm super excited I got this far . Would you recommend keeping them in 2 Gallo pots this year? Or direct plant.
Also, what would you recommend regarding fertilizer at the moment, amount.

also, it will survive the winter right?

Them I men...

I would keep them in pots till they beef up, something like a gallon pot and once roots are poking out of the drainage holes it would probably be safe to get them in the ground. Several years ago I got several little band roses and potted them into gallon pots. After about 6 weeks most had doubled in size and were ready for the garden. I think you'll want to get them in the ground by early fall so they have time to establish before cold weather sets in. I think some soluble fertilizer is a good idea; I'm giving my potted rose a dose of half strength all purpose fertilizer weekly. Or just some slow release like Osmocote would be good. I think mulch would be a good idea, but they should survive the winter.
