Hi-I have a Gardenia that is growing but does not bloom flowers. What can I do so it can bloom?

In order to bloom, your plant needs a nighttime temperature of 60F - 65F degrees and a daytime temperature about 10 degrees warmer. Without an even temperature and careful watering, gardenias will either not develop flowers or they will drop their flower buds while they're still unopened. Bright light also helps with the development of flower buds. I hope yours blooms for you soon!
