Thank you for the natural orange peel idea for the acidity. I did put some acidic food around the pot a few weeks ago because I want it to have all of it necessities.
How often would you water it? Once a week or more? I guess I could put my fingers in there and see when it's dry. The leaves are the same shade of green as when I got it. I just saw on here dark green foliage on the Gardenias. I don't know if any of the flowers are going to open or just drop off. So far one has hit the floor.
When I am outside again I will take some photos.

I gave it fertilizer a few weeks ago. It was something for acid loving plants. I have a general organic fertilizer. Do you think I should put that on?
