Gardenia are very finicky plants!

It is difficult to make them happy and when they change environments they can be difficult to keep happy.

You are correct on the misting, but the heavy water droplets on your plant can be a problem. If the leaves stay wet, it can cause fungus problems.

Here are some articles that will help you.
