Default Roses

Have any of you grown roses in hydro? I read that some need more nitrogen than others. What light schedule are you using? What EC are you using for nutes?

I have never grown roses (in soil or otherwise) but I have been stuck by many a rose rose bush. Here is a link that has pH and EC listed for roses;
ph/ TDS/PPM Levels for Flowers

Here a few things I found on hydroponic roses;
Hydroponic Society of America (This is kind of like a slide show)
Nitrate and potassium uptake by greenhouse roses

P.S. There are so many different hybrids of roses that it may be a trial and error type of situation for variety specific information. Though I would be sure nutrient requirements should be very similar (for soil, and hydro, except pH) for that variety, but another thing you can do is contact the Cooperative Extension System Offices for your local area and they may be able to track down any study's on the specific variety's you need information for.

I have one rose that I cloned last week, It's rooted in rockwool and doing great. I havent put it into the system yet but I dont see it being any more difficult than any other plant
