Bonsai Buds Rotting
I am having an issue with buds rotting off of my gardenia bonsai. Several threads i have read point to perhaps overwatering as the cause of this problem. I am using an aqua globe, a blown glass watering device that claims to deliver water only as the plant needs it. I am going to try draining it for the next couple of days, but I am also wondering if there is another cause to this problem. I have applied epsom salts to the soil for acidity and have previously applied Schultz plant food (10-15-10) in a half dose as prescribed by the care instructions that came with the plant. Perhaps I have over fertilized? I have also read that I shouldn't fertilize when blooms are present. No blooms because all the buds are falling off! Does this rule also apply to the presence of buds? It is very important to me that I not kill this beautiful plant because it is a gift from my husband until we can have children....
thank you SO much in advance.
