My gardenia likes when I give it 'golden showers'

I finally figured it out, my gardenia is a masochist. It likes to be neglected and also to be peed on. It really greens up that way! I even got it to send up two flowers this year, and it's got another teeny bud on it now. So, don't be nice to them, pee on them instead!

Oh my Mercie!!lol

Don't do that for fear you might get caught with your pants down.

I have something easier than that.

Just do an Indian dance for rain every other day since rains pH is perfect and they will do fine. It has worked for me. Now I can't get it to stop
You should see how nice and green mine are now.

Hi MM!
My evil gardenia is greening up real well, it also helped green up my pineapple plants, jasmines, tomatoes, hyacinth beans, bamboos, tomatoes and basil. Only thing that didn't like it was the roses and lavender, turned the rose leaves brown!! I had a serious nitrogen deficiency in the potting soil hubs got this year, pee saved the beans, they were all completely mellow yellow! Also, my lemon, lime and orange tree likes it, though the orange tree I have to put a drainage hole in the bucket, it gets water logged and then is very unhappy with me! LOL!

Don't worry, our yard is pretty private! :)
