Q.Indoor Gardenia

Anonymous added on February 22, 2011 | Answered

I bought an indoor gardenia plant last fall with beautiful blooms that quickly fell off. I made several changes, including moving from well water to filtered water. I also moved the plant from my cold east-facing bow window to my south-facing picture window, thinking it needed more direct sunlight. Now, not so sure. I live in northwest Indiana.

New buds appeared about 2-3 weeks ago, but do not appear to be moving toward opening. The tips of the leaves and the buds are a lighter green than the rest of the leaves, so I assumed it needed fertilizer. I have added Miracid twice now, but do not see any progress. Many of the leaves fell off a while ago with no new leaves appearing. Is this plant salvageable, or have I ruined it?
