It does work. The potato gives nutrients. I would dip the rose cutting in rooting powder first.

This method does work and adding or dipping the steam of the cutting in rooting powder helps to produce roots faster. I normally use a florist foam to root mine.

You should try and scrape off a small amount of the green on the steam to expose the white inner layer first before dipping it in rooting powder.
