Cee’s Flower of the Day – September 24, 2018 – Pink Rose





    • Hi Brighde! 🙂 I was fortunate enough to be given these in bloom early in the year. They died off after a few months and then began to sprout in July from the stem i had cut back once the last flowers dropped off.

      I made sure to just give them a light spray of water every couple of days in the winter, kept them in as much light indoors as i could and nature did the rest. Oh and i gave them a little liquid fertilizer once a month. They are in an oval pot about 4x6x10 inches filled with pine mulch and easy drainage.

      I think living in a Mediterranean like climate helps though 😉

      Good luck and thanks for commenting! 🙂


  1. I love real plants as opposed to silk flowers because of the thrill of a bud opening. The real fun of these plants is making them come back. I have not had the patience for it, but I know someone who has a whole shelf of them, and can make them come back the way you have. It amazes me.
