There is no trick. The issue is that Wave petunias are hybrids, a cross of the genes from 2 parents. Genetics determine the color and behavior of plants much like children; children rarely look exactly like either parent and their behavior is not the same. Each child has a different mix of parental genes. If you grew bunches of saved seed, you might get a few that wave. Many hybrids, including Wave petunias are trademarked; therefore it is illegal to grow it from saved seed or to propagate the plant through cuttings - even for your own garden.
