Rosa, Miniature Rose
Place rose plant where it will receive the most light – a sunny window sill is ideal and east-facing is best. It also benefits from being placed outside on a balcony or in the garden. They can either be brought in when in bloom to enjoy the flowers or left outside. Pots kept on a balcony or patio over winter may need some protection to prevent the root ball from freezing.
Water liberally when indoors allowing the top 1-2 inches of soil to dry out in between waterings. Rose plants need humidity so mist leaves regularly. If needed place rose plant on a tray of water with a layer of pebbles to form a shelf for the rose plant to sit on. Do not let the rose itself sit in the water. When the water evaporates it will help with humidity for the plant.
Roses prefer average daytime temperatures ranging between 13-24ºC.
Fertilize Roses in early spring, use a Rose or balanced garden fertilizer with even 10-10-10 or 12-12-12 ratio at half manufacturers recommended strength every three weeks.
Any good potting mix with neutral pH (pH 7) Roses will love!
New plants won’t need pruning. As they get older, you’ll want to remove dead branches or any crossing branches that rub against each other. Don’t be afraid to prune it back hard in fall, after flowering.
