|I have a Gardenia plant for 2 weeks now and some of its leaves are turning yellow.
It's in room with south window, no direct sunlight.
I water it 2-3 times per week, when I see that leaves are going down, with boiled water.
I also spray it with water from time to time.
Some little spiders where spotted last week so I sprayed it with anti-pest repellent yesterday and the week before.
Any ideas how can I help it?

|Gardenias are very difficult plants to keep happy indoors. Keep your close enough to a window that it gets a couple of hours of direct sun each day, but no more than that.
Never let the soil get too dry. Water it as soon as the surface of the soil feels barely damp or almost dry and then water it thoroughly. That would be no more frequently than every 5-7 days.
There is no reason to use boiled water. If your tap water is hard, then use filtered or distilled.
