Arethey still alive?

Hey all,

I bought some mini rose bushes from Stop & shop about 4 months ago. They've been in my house. All of the flowers dried out and some of the stems also appear dry. I've been watering them (not to much, just so it's moist). I was going to plant them this Spring, but I don't know if they are alive or not. Any recommendations?

If the stems are brown, they are dead. If the stems are still green, you have a shot. Clip the stems a bit, and if they are very dry and not flexible, dead. There are several posts here on the Mini Forum on how to successfully keep those store minis alive inside during the winter.

Thanks Diane_nj, I'll have to try that. I know some stems are green, but some are half green and half brown. Does that mean they are half dead? LOLOL
