My sister received a miniature rose as a gift. It is winter so she is keeping it indoors. However, within a few days the leaves began to turn yellow. Does it need fertilizer?

Lack of nutrients can cause leaves to turn yellow, but in this case, since the yellowing happened so quickly I think it may just be the shock of getting acclimated to a new home. It may recover on its own. In addition to lack of nutrients, yellowing can also be a sign of overwatering, underwatering, and/or lack of light. It might also be a sign of insect infestation, so check the leaves and stems carefully for anything unusual.
