I brought it indoor for the photos. that's all, just incase you're wondering. lol

Is that a brand new rose? You are 3 - 4 years from it being mature enough for cutting, IMO. You want the plant to have substantial growth, enough to sustain growing blooms with long stems, leaving a lot of leaves in the plant, and to be able to recover once those stems are removed.

You could always pinch off the blooms and float them in a crystal bowl. If you remove the buds the first year, the plant can focus on root production.

Hello everybody, and thank you all for the replies :)
Despite what it looks like, the rose bush is 2-5 years old.
The reason it is so small is because the fools at brookfields nursery kept pruning them EXTREMELY hard, all the time!
I already cut the flowers at the sides leaving one-third of the stem with a few leaves. sorry... >_>
I left the middle stem untouched, tho.
It does not seem to have suffered any shock, tho.
