How to Make Chrysanthemums Bloom 2: The Results

For over a month and a half, I tried to make my mums bloom.  I've read that mums are photo periodic and will bloom as a reaction to shorter days and longer nights.  And so I experimented.  For over a month and a half, I carried my 30-pound pot (estimated when wet) to and from the shed, 30 feet away, daily.  I got tired doing it.  Maybe it'll be easier to figure out how to put a shaded blanket over my mums.  My mums look okay, but haven't shown any signs of blooming.  On to the next attempt I guess.
