I've got a gardenia started from a pruning. How do I get it to branch out?

Gardenia's should start branching on their own once they get to 12-15" tall, depending on the variety. If your plant is this tall already, and hasn't started branching, pinch out the top 3 leaves with the main stem. Removing the 'crown' you force the plant to send out lateral branches.
