Sorry to say that roses are not indoor plants. They originate from cold countries such as English rose gardens in Castle estates. Roses will not flourish in the constant temperature dry air of your home.They also need natural light from the sun, not your house lamps. How about planting a rose bush outside and beside your living room window, then your wife can view the roses from inside. You can also shape a climbing rose to reach a 2nd floor window if your rooms are upstairs.
