      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      People often return from holiday with the idea of growing a Gardenia as a houseplant, after seeing larger versions growing outdoors in hotter climates. The plant's heady perfume from pure white flowers seems very appealing, yet the results can often be disappointing. Here are a few hints. They like plenty of light and a steady warm temperature; however, they must be kept out of direct sunlight, so position them carefully or screen them with a piece of kitchen foil or whatever. They like a moist atmosphere, so sit the plant on a tray of moist gravel. Also, they like acid conditions, so use a lime-free compost and a fertilizer intended for lime-hating plants. Water them with rain water if possible, or use boiled (and filtered) water to remove the carbonates. So it takes a little effort, but the outcome can be very rewarding.
