I had not heard about banana peels and roses. That might explain why the rose bush in front of the compost pile is so much bigger than the others planted at the same time.

I've heard that banana peels are great for roses too. I have found since I use the droppings from my vermiculture (worm compost) on my indoor plants everyone of them is surviving winter without leaf drop. I've used this for the past two winters.

Put it in the western window??? Maybe the light is not filtering in right in the east window. You also might try natural plant fertilizers as the indoor plants may have to be fertilized every 2 weeks. Natural fertilizers such as well-rotted manure and fish emulsion add micronutrients like iron, manganese, copper, calcium, sulfur, zinc, molybdenum and boron to the soil, as well as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Roses love a mixture of seaweed or fish emulsion, compost and composted manure.

Right now I have 2 miniature rose plants in my house. One of them is growing & doing beautifully, the other seems to be drying up & dying! The only difference is where they are at. The healthy one is in a western facing window, the other in an east facing window.
Does anyone have any ideas how to save the dying one?
