Yellowing Gardenia Radicans Leaves - and don’t know where to start

I’ve read a lot about the causes of yellowing gardenia leaves but the descriptions don’t tend to relate to what I’m seeing which is yellow veins first then the rest slowly fading to yellow, sometime in patches, so thought I’d join a forum.

I’ve been noticing this over the past 2 months (I live in Sydney) and both large and small leaves are turning yellow and can be from the top or bottom of the plant.

I’ve used soil for gardenias and azaleas so wouldn’t think there would be a nutrient deficiency as the PH is between 4.8 and 5.8 on the bag and has added magnesium and iron.

I’ve moved it inside with a humidity tray (the soil isn’t in contact with the water) to see if a more steady temp would help but I’m still seeing leaf drop.

I’ve got grow lights to make sure it gets enough light too.

Any ideas would be great if the pictures attached help?
