I have a mini rose and I'm just wondering if this is a burn from the light or burn from the heat. On the right is a normal leaf.

Neither. 😮
More water ! PLEASE 😇
Roses love full sun. Hear in Fresno. Summers get up to 110 f. Or more somtimes. Roses dont care. Freezing dont bother them either.

Welcome!

I suspect you are trying to keep this little rose as a houseplant. Its not possible - Roses (and Azaleas) make terrible houseplants. It needs to go outside.

I'm actually keeping it in a terrarium with controlled UV lights, heat, and moisture/humidity. Basically everything that you can find outside. I read somewhere else that when it comes to putting roses somewhere new, you can't just throw them out there, they have to be acclimated. Could that possibly be the case here?

Can you give more details on the light (and heat). Is this a UV light for reptiles or does it have a spectrum suitable for plants? If the terrarium is in a house it doesn't need extra heat. Whether extra humidity is a good idea depends on the rest of the environment. As Daisy said, it is difficult to grow roses in a house but whether it can go outside right now depends on your climate, can you tell us roughly where you are in the world?

Indoor roses are like caged wild birds. You may get it to survive but you won't make it happy. Turn off the heat and humidity. That rose should be dormant right now. Maybe its trying to go dormant and you aren't allowing that to happen.
