Hi everyone,

So. Ow I'm back with a dilemma, the rose cutting stem has now turned yellow at the top only, does that mean its dying?

I have looked everywhere online for similar problem but never with rose cuttings like this one?

Has anyone experienced this issue? What can I do about it? Please advise.

Thank you

We came from here:

The thread "When to take rose cutting cover lid off once it has sprouted? Indoors" in Ask a Question forum

Two things:

The humidity is way too high in your humidity dome. They are living in water world at the moment and that will encourage rot.

Cuttings root first and grow new leaves second. If your roses are growing new leaves first, they are using the stored energy in the stem to bloom again, not root.

Cuttings need some humidity but if you can see water droplets, the humidity is a 100%. Make your 'vent' large enough so water doesn't form on the inside. My bigger concern is that the cutting is growing leaves this soon. If you leave a rose in a bouquet, sometimes after the flower has died, the stem will start to grow what appears to be leaves. Actually, its trying to bloom again and will never grow roots. Its one of the dangers of using a flower stem.

@daisyL I have now taken off the screw lid now and see what happens. Is that what you meant by making the vent bigger?

Yes.. I believe they have no roots yet and possibly using up the stored energy in the stem?

Don't know whether to trim the yellow bit or just leave it.

They are exposed to shaded bright light and a heat mat at night.

Do you think they still have a survival rate at all?

Thank you for your kind reply. very much appreciated Hurray!

Daisyl, one of the cutting is showing signs of black now at the tip but I think both the cutting is still showing growth. I just couldn't resist tugging one of the stem just to see any roots down there and to .y surprise, there seem to be some resistance and appear to be growing roots I hope!!! ( that is the one without the black but pale green at tip)

I've taken the cap off and there were still many evaporation water vapour there so I've poked some extra small holes at the top.

Will update and hope that ones doesn't turn black!!!

Lovey dubby

Don't think there's any roots yet. Some of my other cuttings has died. The yellow one at the top is still alive!!!! This picture is another one I did during the same time as the other ones.

Its looking promising. Had grown few leaves on top but I think wait for the bottom shoot to grow a set of leaves before taking it outside.

Thank you so much DaisyL, I've taken the cap off now, think I'm going to give it about a week till I take them out but I will repot it later today as roots are showing at bottom.

I couldn't believe my eyes! Thank you so much for advice on here. I hope it will stay alive, put it in partial shade outside and focus on growing strong roots.

Do you think I will need to take it back indoors during autumn though. Temperature here in u.k gets rather cold at times.


Thank you and great day! Hurray!

Thank you Mindi,

Yes they were from a bouquet. They are hybrid teas I think, it came with other foliage with it and so far I could only root the mint that came with it.

Tried rooting in water the roses and also the potato method and it never worked so this is my first time with the soil and I am so happy!

Its been fun. Hurray!
