Q.Cactus Rose Winter Care

Zone 44654 | nana3ingram@gmail.com added on October 22, 2020 | Answered

I’ve brought my 4″ cactus rose inside for the winter 3 wks ago. I’ve purchased a plant light to use. They’re doing very well and even have new leaf growth. Do I need to water them more while using the plant light?
