Can someone help me with my Mom's gardenia? What is happening is it's giving off a "sticky" substance. It was all over the table and all over the leaves. She wiped the leaves off and the sticky stuff came back. She took it and washed it in a soapy water. She said it's starting to come back again. What's causing this? We've never had a gardenia plant
. Also, it did have a bud but it fell off before opening. I'd appreciate any info anyone has about this. We don't know what's causing this.
