I have a gardenia bonsai that I can't seem to understand how to take care of it. Currently I am "dunking" it once a week for 20 minutes (per the directions) and spraying it throughout the week to make sure I keep the soil moist. Once watered some leaves turn yellow and want to fall off. It just now started to have baby buds, but they turn brown and eventually fall off! I don't know how to figure the watering out.
It has a humidity tray and pebbles on the top of the soil. It is in a window with natural light. I have started opening the windows, so it's getting air. I live in NY. I'm not sure what else to do??
Please help, I know this can be a beautiful and healthy plant and I will do what it takes to keep it alive!
I have a picture if anyone is interested...feel free to email me.
