1st time planing anything…
So may 7th I had a customer cut off a long branch with a few roses on it and told me to take it home, pant it in a pot at least 14 inches and it will grow into a new rose bush. he son has done this many times she said... so i did as she said, but the planter i got is actually 16 inches, yet all of the roses are all droppy and wilted now... I have never planted anything in my life before so dont know whats causing this. I water the plant every other day. and it gets a good amount of direct sunlight. I did read online that it would take up to 9 months for the rose bush to re-root and become a new bush, it didnt say anything about if the flowers would die off in the process or not. can anyone give me tips on what to do? - Tyler
