Knockout rosebush is not thrivingโ€ฆ

Tips on my knockout rose plant. I got it for Vday and followed the watering instructions. The whole plant started to die so eventually I was forced to prune it down to this. About a week ago it popped up with a new sprout. But no new growth since then. What is the best way to care for this baby ? #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #KnockoutRedRose
3ft to light, indirect
6โ€ pot with drainage
Last watered 1 month ago
Hi! Iโ€™ve had them outside here in zone 8b so I know they like heat and bright light. Roses in general also hate having wet leaves so water carefully. You can also give them coffee (used grounds mixed in water or literally water them with a pot of coffee) to help them push out growth. ๐ŸŒฑโ˜€๏ธโค๏ธ
@RealSimpleMama Thank you so much ! I will def try this out ! It hasnโ€™t been warm enough here to put them outside but hopefully in the next couple weeks I can !
I would definitely put her in more light, while she's indoors maybe try a south facing window. Roses love the sun ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒน
flowerFairy">@flowerFairy thank you ! Iโ€™ll def move it ! I red indirect sunlight and I took it too literal I think ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ
You're welcome! I'm not sure where you read indirect light for roses, but roses need 6 hours of direct sun per day ๐Ÿ˜Š
flowerFairy">@flowerFairy i googled it but ya know on there you get 100 different answers lol ๐Ÿ˜‚
Oh yeah it can be overwhelming on Google ๐Ÿ˜… She looks like she's still got some leaves and green so there's a chance she'll bounce back with the right conditions. ๐Ÿ˜Šโค
