Growing a Rose in a Potato at Home

  1. Choose a rose you would like to plant. Remove all leaves, cut off the bud and part of the stem (1–1 ½ inch). Make a cut on the stalk of the rose at an angle of 45 degrees.
  2. Take a potato and, using a drill, make a hole large enough to fit the stalk. The hole should be quite small so that the rose stays fixed.
  3. Put a two-inch layer of soil into a pot. Place the potato with the rose in the soil and fill the pot.
  4. Cut the bottom of the plastic bottle and cover the stalk of the rose with the top. In doing so, you will achieve the greenhouse effect. In order not to wet the stalk, pour water around the plastic bottle.
  5. Now let’s hope that everything went well, and you will soon grow a beautiful rose. The first sprouts should appear very quickly.

This trick works with all varieties of roses. Surprise your loved ones with a wonderful, thoughtful gift! We bet they have never gotten anything this adorable. Don’t forget to share this article with your green-thumbed friends!


I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
