    I was given the Brownie Rose as a present. Its a new rose, very young and came from a reputable dealer. It currently lives in my spare room where it gets lots of indirect sunlight and is a comfortable temperature. For some reason it has started to wilt badly, the orginal leaves are large dark green leaves and the new ones are smaller lighter. It hasnt flowered yet. Im very worried about it. What has happened and what can I do to help it! Is there any Ideas you can help me with?

    Possibly just needs more sunlight. Roses require a minimum of 6 hrs of direct sunlight (or equivalent) per day. Also check for and signs of pest or disease.
