πŸͺ΄ Nutrients

How to fertilize China Rose

China Rose Plant Care: Water, Light, Nutrients | Greg App 🌱 (52)

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.

By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.

To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your China Rose after it doubles in size or once a yearβ€”whichever comes first.

  • Why do all my mini roses die??? When I bring them home they are flourishing and with in a couple weeks they drop all their leaves and die. Help! 😫

    I got my first #Maranta #PrayerPlant at the grocery store a couple weeks ago, and she’s already twice the size! I was a little bit nervous because I’ve heard they’re persnickety, but she’s been a dream so far! Last night while grocery shopping, they had #PolkaDotBegonia! I couldn’t pass it up; it was a wishlist plant and cheap! Letting her acclimate to her new home. And just wanted to share some updated pics of some of my orange flowers outside! Princess Peach’s bloom opened and it’s gawgeous, my calendula is steadily blooming and I think she’s more than ready to be planted in the flower bed, and the wallflowers are wallflowering 🧑🧑🧑 #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #NewGrowth #OutdoorGrowing #OutsidePlants #Begonia #BegoniaBunch #PlantTherapy #babevila

    Crispy girl Hi everyone. You’re probably going to facepalm this - but our potted rose bush has suddenly gone super crispy. Every single leaf. And seems death is imminent 😞She is in a self watering pot and occasionally I water through the soil too. She survived the winter and now that it’s warming up - I’m afraid I’ve done something wrong … any advice or info super appreciated!

πŸ’‘ FAQs

⭐ Difficulty Level

China Rose can be challenging to care for, according to some plant parents. Check out the reviews down below to learn from their experiences!

πŸ’¦ Water Needs

China Rose prefers for the soil to dry out between waterings and should be watered regularly. Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.

β˜€οΈ Sunlight Needs

China Rose requires abundant, bright and direct light. Place it less than one foot from a window to ensure it receives enough light to survive πŸ’ͺ. Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement in your home 🏑.

🐢 🐈 πŸ‘Ά Toxicity

China Rose is not known to cause harm to humans or pets. Regardless, if you, a family member, a cat, or dog has ingested any plant material, please consult a doctor or a veterinarian.

πŸ’¨ Humidity

China Rose doesn’t require additional humidity. Plants absorb most water through their root system rather than their leaves, so the best way to provide humidity for your plants is through watering the soil.

πŸͺ΄ Soil

China Rose does best in well-draining soil. A good soil will contain lots of organic matter such as coco coir as well as perlite or vermiculite to help with drainage. Adding a handful of perlite to regular store-bought potting soil should do the trick!

πŸ’© Fertilizer

China Rose should be repotted after it doubles in size or once a year, whichever comes first. Fresh potting soil has all the nutrients your plant needs, so as long as it’s refreshed yearly, you shouldn’t need to use fertilizer. Remember, plants get their energy from sunlight, not fertilizer!

🌎 Native Region

China Rose is native to Asia, Europe, North America, and northwestern Africa.

🌸 Flowers

Yes, you may see your China Rose bloom with the right amount of sunlight and water.

⬆️ ⬇️ Growth Pattern

China Rose will branch off as it grows. To encourage branching, pinch off the newest growth at the tip and the stem will branch off into two.

🌦️ Growing Outdoors

USDA Hardiness Zone
China Rose can be grown outdoors in USDA Hardiness Zones 7a-8b. Find your local hardiness zone here.

🌱 Propagation

China Rose can be propagated by the stem method. To propagate:

  • Make a cut just above the node. The node is the break in the stem where the leaf emerges.
  • To get the cutting to root, you can either:
    • Place the cutting in water until roots emerge and are ~2” long and then transplant into well-draining soil, or
    • Place the cutting directly into well-draining soil and water when dry.

πŸ‚ Yellow Leaves

Yellow leaves aren’t always a reason to panic, and can be a normal part of a plant’s life cycle. Unless brand new leaves are turning yellow or all the leaves change color at once, it’s likely just your plant shedding old leaves.

Overwatering and root rot are the most likely cause of problems in China Rose, since they are sensitive to wet soil. The leaves may also appear to be curling or drooping. Less often, yellow leaves are caused by underwatering, nutrient deficiencies, or pests.

Replace soggy soil with fresh, dry soil and download Greg to make sure your plant never gets overwatered again!

🧐 Troubleshooting

When troubleshooting a sad-looking houseplant, start by checking for signs of distress in its leaves, such as yellowing, browning, or drooping, which can indicate overwatering or nutrient deficiencies.

Inspect the soil moisture; too dry or too wet soil can cause problems.

Ensure the plant is getting the right amount of light, as too much or too little can stress it.

Finally, consider environmental factors like temperature and humidity, and adjust care routines accordingly to revive your plant.

I simply love her the minute I saw her. I love roses and always wanted to grow them. I found it at Safeway and it was the only one. I couldn’t put it down cuz I felt bad that it was all alone and most likely be thrown out or die in a home with no love. So I bought it!!! It’s a perfect Mother’s Day gift to my mom....and to me.
