Gardenias in the Window Sill

I'm doing everything I can to keep my little Bansai gardenias alive. The leaves turn yellow with spots on them and drop off. The one with the broken pot on the left has been especially distressed. But, the one on the right has actually blossomed! I'm enjoying its sweet smell as I wash the dishes. I'm worried that in a few more months they will have no more leaves and will shrivel up and die, but in the meantime I'm enjoying the fact that I'll at least get to see the blossoms first!

  1. Both plants seem to be doing rather well.

    I bought a geranium, because the one I painted in class did not look like a geranium.

    Unfortunately, it now appears that that plant may have given it's life for the sake of my art-ego.
