I have recently purchase a monrovia gardenia for indoor plant. The plant has a lot of small buds, however, all the big buds turn brown and fell off. I have since increase the humidity via humidifier and tray of stones&water. Now the young leaves are light green with dark veins. Does the plant need fertilizer? iron? Can I fertilize it while it has buds? Please advice me the best course of action. (The plants also has tiny black bugs and is being treated with mild soap)

I hope this helps you trouble shoot your plant. Don't be discouraged, this is a tough one to grow at home especially without a greenhouse. too that a high humidity level helps to combat spider mites.
