Wax covered roses
I just bought a new rose bush and it is coated with wax. I removed that from the tips of the plant. Should I remove all of it?

I wouldn't worry about the wax. It's applied to the plant to help prevent it from drying out during shipment. (and sitting on a shelf for a while)
Eventually it will break down and disappear on it's own, with no harmful effect.
