How often should I water my gardenia?

Great question about watering your gardenia.

I usually try to avoid watering the leaves on plants. It can cause problems with disease. Be certain it has good drainage and then water as needed. If the soil is mushy, don’t water. However, it would be best to keep it from drying out. Depending on the air temperature and sunlight, it might require watering once a week or more a couple of times a week. If it continues to have problems once you have the watering figured it, you might find it needs a sunnier spot.

Thanks for writing!
