|Light||Light shade or full sun|
|Water||Ensure soil is moist or boggy|
|Temperature||Prefer full sun in mild climates, light shade in hot climates|
Most species are native to Asia, with smaller numbers native to Europe, North America, and northwestern Asia.
Roses prefer warmer climates, around 70°F during the day and need lots of sun to grow. Place your rose near a southern or western facing window to ensure growth. Turning the plant from time to time will also help. Because of their delicate shallow roots, roses need an abudance of water but must have proper draining holes. They cannot tolerate drought. Watering during the morning or early afternoon will prevent fungus or growth from reaching the plant.
Be sure to keep a watchful eye on the growth of your rose. You may need to repot if you begin to see roots reaching the surface of the soil. Often times roses that need repotting will also exhibit signs of wilting when they are watered. Be sure to repot your rose in a larger, well-drained pot. During the winter months your rose will need time to rest. Keeping it in warm tempuratures will impact the plant’s overall health. Place your rose near a cooler window during the day or your garage during the evenings.
