How to fix Gardenia stem going green?

Hi everyone. I got a problem with my gardenia. The stem is going green. Not sure what type of disease it has and how to fix it. Is it just from all the rain?

Re: Gardenia help

Hello @eugz92


Thank you for sharing your question about your gardenia. Looking at the picture, I don't see any indication of an insect attack, the leaves are in good health with no yellowing, brown spots or curling. I think it might just be a bit of moss growth due to too much rain. I suggest keeping an eye on it for the next few weeks. If the weather turns sunny it should go away and the gardenia's stem will go back to its usual colour.


Let me tag our experienced members @Noelle and @Adam_W for their recommendations.

Completely agree, Eric! 


No disease, no problem, just some greening from lack of sun and possibly high humidity.
