Care of Gardenia Indoors


vcjapn added on March 1, 2017 | Answered

Given as a gift, the flower buds on my plant formed but turned black and died. After watering it regularly, it now has lots of new flower buds, and I'm hoping they will produce the lovely perfumed flowers. How do I keep it healthy and flowering as an indoor plant? Thank you.

Making sure it gets plenty of light, increasing the humidity, and avoiding overwatering and underwatering will help your gardenia produce beautiful flowers:

Check your plant carefully for insects and other pests. As the following article explains, pests often infest indoor gardenias, and they can cause flower buds to drop off before opening. Follow the links in the article to see control methods for various bugs:
