Asked April 17, 2017, 4:15 PM EDT

it is in a six inch pot and tall and the lower leaves are dropping off no yellowing or black spot just dropping i', not sure where he got it but I need to find out what is making the leaves drop off on the lower stems it has about four stems and each has a red rose open and looks pretty but all the leaves down below the blooms are dropping off ? Thanks , Charlotte Daughtrey

The problem can be environmental. Too much water or not enough light can cause house plants to drop their leaves. Here is a link to a publication by the American Rose Society on caring for miniature roses.
