The plant is grafted on a 3 ft stem. I was recently purchased. It has 4 or 5 leaves with medium brown patches mainly on the edge. I've read that insecticidal soap should not be used on Gardenias. What else could be used, Alcohol solution??

sevin a 5 gallon bucket the label.........this must be done outdoors as it is going to flow over. fill up a sprayer bottle for later use.... 3 ft stem might need to be dipped first.....then wait with the top in the mix's easier sitting down holding the top in the full 5 gallon mix........give it 5 minutes...........then carefully turn it over and put the whole bottom inside the 5 gallon will over flow so better to do this closer to the grass..........wait until the bubbling stops and take it out and let it drip............this is one of my favorite plants.
