Help on my propagated rose stem?

Hello, I have a rose stem from a bouquet that I have propagated since May 25th. I stopped a fungal infection a few weeks ago, and I noticed these white bumps growing at the top. I am wondering if I made a mistake cutting too close to a node trying to save it, and now it is callusing and will grow roots?? What should I do? Should I snip it? This rose is quite important to me, and I am worried that this may cause it to spend too much energy and die if it had not yet rooted ( I feel it is a tad bit early yet to check). Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Hello this is the same cutting I posted. I had propagated this from May 25 and it seems to be forming a bud. Should I snip it off to help it grow more roots? and if so what is the best technique to do so?

Welcome to the forum :)

I've just merged your threads as they seem to be about the same plant. Hopefully someone can help soon :)

Welcome to the forums @Miscflora :) I missed your first post, and congratulations on getting your cutting to root. What are you growing it in? It looks like a bottle?? Will you take it out and put it in the soil in the garden eventually? I wonder if it would be better off in a pot for now, and then it would be easier to nip off the flower as you suggest, to help the roots get stronger.

Hello! thank you :). It is growing in a container with a bottle on top. I am not sure if it will die, I am a bit afraid to take it out to cut the bud as I believe there is a needed acclimation factor, however I am located in Hawaii so it could be do able? As for now, I plan to most likely transfer it to a big pot, though I have not yet decided if I want it in the ground.

Here in the UK we put rose cutting out into the ground to root. They are much tougher than you think. Your cutting is being so overprotected it is in danger of being a real weakling. If I were you I would take the bottle right off now and give it a bit more air. Keep it inside for a little while, and cut the bud off. Gradually get it used to the big outside, maybe in a shady place to start with and get it toughened up.

That looks so lovely! Thank you, I will try follow what you said. Do I cut the bud off, say 3mm from the head, or do I cut it off as close to the main stem cutting as possible?

Close to the main stem. Then you have to stop worrying, and let your new plant do some work for a change. Give it a good talking to and tell it to get on and do it's stuff for you - if it behaves itself you might give it a drink of water occasionally ;)
