|My mom got me this rose shrub for mother's day. I live in an apartment so I had in a planter and it was flourishing for about two weeks, then started dying and now completely dead. How can I can bring it alive, and what amount of water should I water each day?

|Roses need all day sunshine - or at least 6 hours of direct sun each day. If yours is indoors, it's probably not getting the sunlight it craves. You should water enough to make the soil moist and the excess water drain out of the bottom of the pot, then wait until the top of the soil feels dry to the touch before watering again. Why not try pruning off the dead leaves and stems. If the roots are still alive you'll see new growth. Hope it makes it!
