Problem with Gardenia Bush
I planted 2 gardenia bushes in my home in Florida. They bloomed once, and now it has some yellow leaves, but it has not bloomed. It does not get sun. Is that the problem? Should it be planted where there is abundant sun? Thank you for your help.

The yellow leaves mean that the plant is under a kind of stress and, when it is stressed, it can't hold on to its flower buds.
