Your plants are lookin' good, phonelady.

I grow a lot of things under grow lights. It doesn't matter what it is, it will do better outdoors under natural light. But I can get it to grow and fruit inside the house.

I've got citrus and figs in pots inside the house. When they were smaller, they would be carried outside every day in the summer and brought inside at night. They were always happier outside. But now they are bigger and I can't carry them so they stay inside. They still produce fruit.

All of them were pleased to get rained on. Their response was so strong you could see it.

well I don't know how they will continue to grow, but the seeds I planted are doing well and are helped by the lights. Now will they continue until time to replant in the containers only time will tell. I have never really tried to grow anything for long periods of time under lights. yours look fine to me. I don't think I would ever tackle something like a mini rose plant, but veggies and others that will eventually be planted outside are fine.

okay secret to roses is not complicated I have huge rose bushes outside and every summer I have people stop and ask me what is my secret ? okay here goes : dig a hole put gravel or small rocks inside said hole , add water and then add bush and then cover it with the dirt to the side of the hole you dug out . and leave them alone water and fertilize and wallah in a couple of months you will have stunners for roses . I put my minis outside during the day and bring them in at night .
