Help My Tea Rose?

I have a tea rose/potted miniature rose that I think I may have killed. When I transferred it to a bigger pot it was really dry. I had been watering it but apparently not enough. All of the leaves fell off. I have been keeping it moist because the branches themselves are still green. I have it sitting in a cool room where it receives sunlight most of the day. Is it dead or gone dormant?


Please help this poor plant survive being owned by me. I look at it and feel so sad for this poor plant.

Hardiness Zone: 7a

Probably got too dry and shocked out. Just don't keep soggy. Try a light solution of fish emulion and fresh compost tes

try a banana peel. dig a little hole in the dirt next to the roots and plant a banana peel, and cover it up. it should give your roses (any kind) a boost. you can also try used coffee grounds as well.

Thanks for the info. I 'fed' a banana peel to my tea rose.
I noticed as I was adding the peel that some of the branches seem to be getting more green then brown.
