Why can't a Mini Parade Rose be grown indoors?
Those Parade roses are sold as temporary, disposable table decorations, not expecting customers to cultivate them long-term. The growers root a few cuttings for each pot in some kind of spongy medium, get them blooming inside a greenhouse and ship them out for sale.

But ... the good news is you can have success with them, as others have stated.
There is no way, in my opinion, for them to get enough natural sunlight indoors to thrive and rebloom. An indoor grow-light with the correct spectrum for plants is needed. I know someone who grows minis under grow-lights in his basement all winter and they bloom well.
They are certainly overcrowded in the pot you got them in. Gently repot them in good quality potting soil into a larger container.
By the way, I have had good results growing three colors of Parade roses outdoors, both in pots and in the ground. They seem to thrive in our mild climate here, with large, long-lasting blooms.
Be very sparing with fertilizer on potted mini roses -- water well first and only use half the strength of the package directions. Best of luck!
I agree with everything everyone has said but just want to add to what jpw said about the bugs. There aren't any predators inside so the bad guys take over. Even trying to grow roses in a sunny screened in area amounts to the same thing...no predators.
If you are new to growing roses growing them inside seems like more of a challenge than you are ready to handle.
