2 weeks in and so far so good. Using an areo garden 3 for grow light. Watering with distilled water. Gonna buy two more and try to plant them together in a bigger pot.

Looking good! Do you have plans to plant it outside ever? If so I wouldn't plant two together as you'll never get the roots separated to plant them out. One suggestion, when you dead head the spent blooms, cut the stem off down to a set of leaves. Leaving the stub end like that encourages disease and die back and slows regrowth.

I got one of those for Valentine's day and mine comes in at night but out during the day
I think that today I will get it in a bigger pot.
I had 2 Gigi's last year that really took off and got nice and full

You can't plant your new favorite rose if you are still watering your least favorite

If you can plant it in the ground it will get to be a very good sized rose bush. And most minis are very winter hardy so no problems there. Roses really do prefer to be outside.
