I planted a few rose cuttings in a container a week ago. I already see some shoots and new leaves around the nodes. However, when I try to lift the cutting I don't feel any resistance. Not sure if it would have rooted already. Is is possible for new shoots and leaves to grow on a rose cutting without having rooted?

@Smith27

Welcome!

How fast a rose cutting takes and develops roots depends on so many variables it's almost impossible to answer your question.

** Some roses root very, very easily, while others do not.
** Some roses like one propagation method and others will always fail using the same method
** Some roses can be started in the fall, while others are best started in the spring

and so it goes ...

What you are probably seeing with the new growth is that the cutting is using the nutrients stored in the cutting itself to produce the new growth. If the cutting has yet to callus and form roots, it is not ready to become a new plant.

Will the cutting fail ? I really don't know. Again, there are simply too many variables. Give it some time.

The good news is that you are not growing a brown stick.
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.
