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.
