Gardenia Glee.

no doubt this will immediately cause the plants to keel over dead, but the gardenias i grew from cuttings have produced three beautiful blooms.

i'm not sure how many actual plants there are -- i stuck some number of cuttings into two pots -- but i think i have at least five survivors. i'm afraid to repot them but i'm going to have to at some point because the current pots are too small.

for the record, after potting the cuttings seventeen-ish months ago, i ignored them. totally. they sat outside on a bench next to the "mother" plant and every few months i looked to see if they were still alive.

about two months ago, noticing the flower buds, i moved the two pots onto the deck so i could keep an eye on them.
