OK, looks like I posted that incorrectly.
Here are the pictures without all the comments made earlier. As I mentioned I've got some kind of white stuff on the stems of the rose from A.R.E. I am so disapointed. I don't think I'll be purchasing from them again.
The healthy looking rose is from Roses Unlimted, the puny one is from A.R.E.
Please share your ideas with me.
