Planting stem cuttings from bouquets received
« on: February 18, 2012, 06:26:21 pm »
Hello girls! Belated happy Valentine's day! I'm sure most, if not all of us received flowers from our darling loves. I, for one, received a stem of red rose and it's really gorgeous especially nung nagbloom na on its third day sa vase (actually a used Vodka Cruiser bottle, cleaned and half-filled with water ;D).

I've researched around the web kung pwede ko pa sya itanim and alagaan. It is still possible, provided that I trim the stem diagonally with a very sharp scissors para hindi mainjure yung plant, dip it in a rooting powder/agent para tubuan sya ng roots and plant it. I've also read na pwede ring rooting agent ang honey, but I've yet to try this as I really don't want to sacrifice that beautiful long stem sa isang experiment.

So today I purchased from ACE hardware an empty pot, fine compost and a rooting hormone called Hormex. But when I was reading the instructions on how to use the compost, hindi pala pwedeng ito lang ang gagamitin at dapat may kahalong soil. Wala na kaming available soil as of now so I'll postpone this muna and wait na lang tomorrow para makapagpabili ako ng soil so mom ko.

Anyone of you girls who would try or have tried this technique? Please share! :)

hi sis,

ganyan din ang ginawa ko dun sa flower na give ni hubby. yung 1 stem ang itinanim ko and ayun buhay pa naman siya. basta after ko siya i cut, nilagay ko na siya sa pot and di ko na tinignan kung may roots na siya kasi color green pa rin naman so it means nabuhay siya  :)
