I would LOVE to have a gardenia as a house plant, but we are spatially challenged living in a house that measures 24X24 with only 4 rooms, one is a tiny bathroom with no windows. Is this a fantasy, or can i make this a reality?
Are there miniature gardenias? Are there ways to prune without looking those blooms i am so looking forward to?
I have a gardenia that is about 3' tall that I keep in a pot so I can put it outside in the summer and bring it in the house during the winter. It isn't specifically a smaller sized plant or anything, and I do give it a small haircut when I bring it in during the winter.
I do not have any pics. The horrible heat we had this summer (I guess that is what it was as I lost a lot of plants) killed it. It was in probably a 5 gallon size pot. It wasn't any wider than the pot as I kept it trimmed so it didn't get too big.
