Rose cloning part two

This is where the rubber meets the road so to speak. Gather your material and venture into the wilderness.

I cut roughly one foot sections then applied honey to the cut ends (retains moisture, protects from disease and aids in scarring of the cuts). Remove all but a small amount of  leaves at the top and put in your jar of water.

Place the jar in a well lit window (not in direct sunlight) and change the water regularly( at least every other day or as it discoloration occurs).

After a while roots should begin to grow. When a healthy amount of roots grow transfer to a pot at least twice the height of your cutting and allow to grow until it is the same height as your pot before transplanting into the ground.
