The Q&A Archives: Indoor roses

Question: Have in-door gardens, avg. temp. 76 to 78 degrees, many skylights, normal humidity, good soil and water, would like to put in climbing or tree roses for color. Can do?

Answer: I'm so jealous! Your place sounds wonderful! As long as you keep pests in check, and you have areas that get full sun 8-10 hours per day, roses should thrive in that environment. Roses need sun in order to set flower buds. They also need a fairly large pot or growing area, such as a half whiskey barrel or better, to grow well. There are other colorful flowering plants that do well in diffuse light and partial shade - many tropical flowering vines are adapted to blooming under the thick canopy of rainforests.
