Roses are beautiful and fragrant flowers often found in outdoor gardens. It is possible, however, to grow roses in a flower pot, and even to grow them indoors. Growing roses in pots allows you to move the flower from place to place, adding natural beauty to your home or office. When growing roses indoors, it is vital that you give them the proper amount of water and sunlight.

  1. 1

    Fill about two-thirds of the clay pot with the potting mix.

  2. 2

    Place the rose bush in the pot so the bud union -- the swollen area where the grafted stem joints the rootstock -- is level with the top of the soil. Fill in around plant with potting mix.

  3. 3

    Water the rose until water comes out of the bottom of the pot.

  4. 4

    Place the pot in an area that receives at least seven hours of sunlight daily.

  5. 5

    Check the soil every day to ensure that it is damp. Water every day, or every other day, as needed. Poke your finger into the potting mix; if it comes out dry, water the rose.

  6. 6

    Spread a layer of fish emulsion fertiliser on top of the soil once a week before watering. The fertiliser contains many nutrients that will help the rose thrive.
