Hi I took cuttings of a hybrid tea rose and a shrub rose. I stuck them down into plain old water. Will they root. There my first roses I ever had in my life. I hope they root. Can anyone please help me.
Thank You.

Checked out a few Sites regarding your Query...it appears it is possible to root Rose cuttings in water...

Several People have tried that Method with more success than failures reported ...after cutting the Stem to be rooted remove the bottom Leaves {ie dont let the Leaves immerse in the water } and place in the Glass / plastic Cup...it's suggested you do several to ensure the survival of some of them...some People change the water Daily...others Weekly to prevent it stagnating.

Results usually start to appear within 3 Weeks...but care needs to be taken when transplanting them...it seems the Roots are very fragile...others have also reported success just putting them directly into the Ground with a dab of Rooting Powder / Gel...depending on the Weather some of these Rootings took place as late as November...The Water Rootings are normally kept indoors at a Sunny Window...........Best of luck and lets know how you get on....
