>Yes, they root very quickly without misting. The seed starter trays I use
>have a wicking material that runs under the individual cells, a water
>reservoir underneath, and a clear plastic lid. By lifting the upper part of
>the tray, I can usually see roots sticking out of the soil in about a week.
>The real advantage of this method, is the shoots don't emerge until the
>roots have formed, so no hardening off is needed. As soon as the shoots
>start to appear, I remove the plastic humidity cover, wait a few days to a
>couple of weeks for the shoots to lengthen, then transplant to larger pots.
>I have never tried this with roses.
