The Q&A Archives: August Beauty Gardenia

Question: I have this plant in a large pot. I have brought it indoors for the winter. A lot of leaves are turning yellow and quite a few have turned black and have fell off. Any suggestions?

Answer: Your gardenia is responding to the changes in temperature, humidity and light. It should adapt; keep the soil moist but not soggy wet, mist the leaves periodically and prune away any black leaves. Pruning will encourage healthy new growth. Enjoy!
