Oh Gardenia...you know the problem!
So, I am here to vent again about gardenias...
I am frustrated about gardenia! They are such a mystery.
My gardenia has been doing so well and then just within a couple of days, you can TELL that it is root rotting!
What is the problem? I am using the gritty mix. Which I started last year and it is working great for all my plants (even bare rooting gardenias was not a problem and all my fungal gnats are gone)!
So it is not because of transplant shock.
It should not be about watering since I really haven't changed my watering habits (once every 3-4 days indoors).
I do not over fertilize, I use foliage-pro at half the suggested amount or less each time I water.
I even add hydrogen peroxide (1 tbsp/gallon) to increase aeration (or just self satisfaction since the gritty mix is so aerated already).
Why does it do this all the time! Gardenia just gets root rot, and it was doing great and I haven't changed anything?
Any suggestions? Do gardenias still die for you even though it is already in the Gritty?
