House Plants/Gardenia indoor plant


Some of the branches have small, wilted leaves, whilt the rest of the plant remains robust and covered with blossoms. Is this a concern and does it require any treatment?


Hi Tom,

I will need a good photo that shows the entire plant, including its pot to be able to determine the extent of the problem.

It would also be helpful if you could tell me how far it is from the nearest window, how long you have had it, when it was last repotted and your watering routine.

I look forward to your reply so I can better help you.
