I bought a Wave Petunia in a 6 inch pot on May 20.
When I got it home, I watered it and put the pot in a hanging basket.

stuff pet transI filled the blue pot with about 2 inches of potting soil.
I placed the plant into the blue pot. Next, I gently stuffed potting soil down the sides of the roots. I patted the soil down so that there wouldn’t be any air pockets. Air pockets allow water to flow away from the roots and not all of the roots get water.
I put a bit of soil at the top of the Wave Petunia roots.

pet pot blI separated the stems to make them a tad more even around the sides of the basket. I cut two of the stems apart that had grown together.
I had debated cutting all of the stems to the same length, but decided not to do that.
On June 17, I watered and gave the Wave Petunia a light feeding.
The Petunia looks very happy today.

These last four pictures are of the Wave Petunia hanging outside.
