My newest indoor plant, a Gardenia tree (about 3 feet tall), had two flowers which bloomed the day after I brought it home from the nursery. They both were pure white, smelled lovely, and died off about 3 days later. I pruned them off, looking forward to the next blooms, since this tree is just loaded with buds of varying sizes. I have not yet repotted it (still in the nursery container) since I wanted to look online and make sure I buy the right container for it. Tonight, as I went to the sunporch (southern facing windows), I'm noticing that a lot of the branched which have the un-bloomed "buds" seem to be drooping and almost "rubber-like" in texture. Also I see a few yellow/yellowing leaves, which I immediately pinched off. Am I killing this beautiful specimen already??
Help me if you can...Thanks!
