Mini Rose

I've shown you photos of my mini rose plant before.


 I bought it in January and enjoyed its beauty.  Then February came and the flowers faded and we had less daylight and the poor thing got all spindly and I thought it was going to die.

So I started to move it into direct sunlight/light every day, ALL day long.  I moved it about 5 times a day.  And it began to photosynthesize and feed itself.  I watered it and it just kept getting healthy.

I repotted it last month and set it in my front window.  Now look at her!  She's got a bud forming!


 She's going to bloom again!


So far there is just one bud, but she continues to put out new growth!

I'm excited because I was able to save her. I love growing things and I am happy to have kept her from dying in February! I love having real plants in my home.

  3. Aww... look at you with your green thumb doing all that you can to save your gorgeous rose plant, how wonderful.
    Those roses are quite lovely for a miniature. Those miniature rose plants never do well for me, maybe it's the lighting?
    Enjoy your day~~
