Unlike planted rose gifts, indoor roses have a lifespan of 5-8 weeks, it’s a plant that requires little commitment and as they only have a height and spread of 25cm they don’t take up a lot of room either.


Roses need a lot of water to thrive and being kept in a container can mean they dry out more quickly. Check the topsoil every couple of days, when the top 1 inch of soil has dried out give it a thorough water making sure that the compost is moist but not wet.


Roses require quite a lot of light in order to flourish so placement is important, make sure to place your rose bowl in an area where it can get at least several hours of sunlight a day. Somewhere by a window would be perfect.


Average room temperature is perfect for indoor roses but keep away from any cold draughts or central heating.


Indoor roses prefer a more humid environment, so if it’s too dry, it may drop its leaves and blooms may shrivel. You can keep the humidity levels up by placing your rose on a tray of pebbles with water in it.


Pruning isn’t a big necessity when it comes to indoor roses. Just make sure to use sharp gardening shears to deadhead any spent blooms and remove any dead branches to prolong the life of your plant.
