Gardenia - sticky leaves? what do I do?
Ok, I bought some new house plants about a month ago, and one of them a tahitian gardenia - I noticed last night that some of the leaves are sticky and I noticed a white spot the top of the stem, that I smudged off with my thumb... but what's causing the stickiness? I didn't see any creepy crawlies when I looked at the leaves, are they to small to see?
how do I treat this, before it becomes a problem? doesn't seem that the leaves should be sticky. They weren't when I received the plant. And none of the other plants around this gardenia are having this problem (yet)... should I quarentine her? is it contagious?
Any and all advice is appreciated.
