The Great $1 Gerber Daisy Experiment

Can it really be this easy??

The only thing better than a New plant is a 
deal on New plant.  All specimens in this experiment 
were bought for 1/3 or less of their marked retail price.   
A quick trim, removal from very cramped pot, regular
 watering, top dressing of compost and TaDa their Back! 
Step 1-Fill one 3-inch potting container with potting soil
 for each stem cutting.
Step 2-Find healthy and vibrant gerbera daisies in the 
summer during the peak of growth. Clip off a stem just
 above soil level and then cut the stem again so that you 
have a 6-inch stem piece. 
Step 3-Dip the bottom end of the stem into rooting
 hormone and place the stem into the potting soil.
Step 4-Keep the containers where they receive 
indirect sunlight, and watch for the stems to show
 signs of growth. This will indicate that the stems
 are taking root. Continue to keep them evenly watered.
Step 5-Transplant your new super discounted gerbera 
daisies to larger containers when they are established 
and growing well.
