What a fun project for children and adults to plant the bulbs and watch them grow and bloom. Paperwhites are extremely fragrant and will fill a room with their scent within a matter of weeks from planting. The Ziva bulb is one with a lovely fragrance.
Timeless beauty, sweet perfume, and absolute dependability have made Paperwhites Narcissus the absolute all-time favorite Narcissus bulb for indoor forcing in winter. As bulbs are essentially storage mechanisms, they already contain everything needed to produce flowers. All you will need to do is water. Clusters of pure white blooms will come 4-6 weeks after potting.
Your Do-It-Yourself kit includes:
- three paperwhite bulbs
- planting soil
- reusable terra cotta planter with saucer.
Set the bulbs atop the soil, filling in with soil around the bulbs to maintain them in position. About the top third of the bulb should be left exposed above the soil level, leaving room in the pot for watering. Paperwhite bulbs like room temperatures, and exposure to sunshine will keep them shorter. As the flower stalks grows towards the light, rotate the pot frequently to prevent toppling. Sit back and enjoy!
