New Gardenia -- Trouble Already
Against my better judgment, I bought a Gardenia. It was small, in bud & a very good buy. So I've have it all of 6 days & am trying to learn its watering needs.
I just did a Google search to read on various comments on Gardenia care. Have already seen conflicting info, on misting the leaves (which I did as it was drying out a bit & I was afraid of bud drop) only to see a site (aftr the fact) which counsels against misting the leaves.
So now I have yellowing leaves & it's not looking good at all. Can anyone tell me pls. are the yellowing leaves a sign of overwatering?
Toni (in particular), is it a goner already????
I know abt the famous Suicidal Gardenia thread, I know they're temperamental & can be difficult. I'm also realizing I think my apmt is just gonna be too darn warm for it. I feel like a MAJOR idiot!!!
Help pls. -- all advice is welcome. TIA
