Gardenia with everlasting buds.. :P

Hello group! :) I have a mysterious Gardenia Jasminoides.... I've had it for a month now, it had buds when I got it, but somehow the buds don't get bigger (very much..) but they're not falling off either. It's lost a few leaves, but I think that's from the damage from when it was in the store. Been keeping it moist, spraying the leaves every few days, but generally the humidity in the room is at 50% and up (normal temp. is around 23 degrees celcius). Is it supposed to take ages for the buds to develop (they're not tiny or anything), or is there something wrong with this picture..? ...the gardenia... ...better shot of the flower buds... ...this orchid just started flowering a few days ago... ...beautiful white amaryllis...
