First of all check all tip on your fuchsia and if you see a 3 leaved fuchsia then that is the best one to grow a Standard Fuchia.

Potted up in a 2"pot first and repot as you start to see roots coming through pot into next size pot untill it reaches a 6"pot.

Put a stake a BQ stick shall do and tie to gether and let it grow straight.

Do not take of leaves on stem until it requires the finished head of standard.

As it grows take out the side shoots on stem.

Every day turn a 1/4 turn .

You can buy standard fuchsia whips ,but its fun trying to have ago yourself.
