Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb, for askmrgreenthumb.com. How do we know to trim roses, and then how do we care for them? When we take a cutting off, like we've done on the small little cutting here, we're probably going to put this into a little mini vase. Now, you can use just one for something like this, or you're taking a bunch of different roses. You could come back in and take a number of them and put them together and put them in a little container. Normally, we're going to put some water and you may put some different formulations of some people like aspirin and some people like to put a little bit of soda into the water, I don't know, no matter what you do, a cut rose is on a limited amount of time that it's going to last. Some people use a little bit of aspirin, some people use a little bit of commercial product that you can put into the water, and basically what you're trying to do is to keep that fungi from growing in the water real quick, or bacteria from starting in the water real quick. Whichever little cutting that you take, enjoy it, remember that you have to change the water every couple of days to make it stay alive on your desk, or on your, in your home, but also remember that it's a thing of beauty and joy and that you'll always have.
