Care tips is for winter season indoors, during the summer months most

about an inch from the soil and let it regrow and should rebloom.

Unless you are a novice gardener,  gardenias is a very tough plant to maintain indoors.
Bright light, cooler temperatures at night,  soil evenly moist not overwatered and a
humidity tray.  Do not mist them with water they'll develop mildew.

Hibiscus- will most likely be dormant indoors during the winter season.  Keep the Hibiscus soil more on the drier side.  Bright light,  sometimes they do bloom or loose their leaves when first brought indoors
for the winter.  It is normal for some plants to loose their leaves and they do grow back.  Hibiscus requires an acid fertilizer during the growing seasons,  Prune them down around December to keep them healthy.  Also if you don't want this plant to grow to large prune their roots down in the late spring and pot it back into the same pot.  I suggest clay pots for Hibiscuses.  Water freely during the
summer hot season outdoors, keep in part shade.

Miniature Roses- needs to be re-potted as soon as possible,  the pots that they come in is way
to small.  Re-pot miniature roses in a pot size that is 3 times larger, for example in the photo
above is a miniature rose in a 4" pot,  it will need a 7 or 8 inch pot.  They like lots of water,  keep soil
very moist at all times.  Do not let any plant sit in water unless it is aquatic or Fiber optic grass plant.
They prefer bright light and temperatures slightly cooler. Any miniature Rose needs about 3-4 inches of soil around their root ball.
