    Good morning everyone. I have questions for the gardeners and green thumbs among you. I’ve never, not once, successfully kept a plant alive, but now I have a home with large front windows with a southern exposure.

    My husband gave me this very tiny little miniature rose bush in a pot for Valentine’s Day. It’s only about three inches tall. I googled what to do, and I realize plants sold in drug stores probably aren’t meant to live, but I’d sure love to save it.

    I’ve repotted it, fed it, keeping it watered just right, resisting the urge to over water since I have no idea what else to do. It gets sun every day for hours in a warm room. Still, it is rapidly dying. Any last minute life support tips?

      I wish I did, but as a serial indoor plant killer, I don’t have much to add. 🙄

      Haven’t gardened in a long time, but my mother once told me that roses are not house plants (I was given one that did the same thing.) As soon as it gets warm enough, plant it outside. You may need a little chicken wire cage over it to deter the rabbits, but my mom has planted the mini ones outside before and they’re fine. Just get the cage on them so the bunnies don’t eat them.

      They are outside plants and need lots of direct sunlight. When it gets HOT they need lots of water, don’t drown them but don’t let the dryout either so a goodly sized pot with plenty off area for their roots and good drainage and some mulch go a long way. If you’re going to leave it in a pot outside, putting it in a lighter colored pot goes a long way to making sure the roots don’t get overheated as the sun hits the pot.

      You can find fertilizer and soil pH info all over the net but if you’re having to frequently water using tap water might pose a problem. If your water’s softened the salts in it can build up over time and cause problems as may the chlorine in it depending on how much your area puts in the water. If your water’s not softened then leaving it out for 24 hours before you put it on your plants helps but good old rainwater is still #1. We put a lot of plants under the roof’s drip line to catch the morning condensation runoff as an adjunct.

    I’ve successfully translated the mystery inscription on this potato to read:

    Mornin’ everyone. It was cold in the apt when I woke up this morning. I checked the outdoor thermometer and it said 10*. 😯 I knew that couldn’t be true. But, it is a digital and somehow got changed to celsius. LOL
