The Technique

Paperwhites may be found from garden centers to markets throughout the holiday season & into the new year. They make a lovely selection to plant & enjoy indoors when it’s cold outside. The most simple way to start bulbs is to snuggle a few between smooth pebbles in a glass or ceramic container. Add just enough water to almost reach the bottom of the bulbs. In short order, the roots will begin to sprout & grow towards it. Keep plants in a cool room, approximately 65 degrees, with bright indirect light in order to promote shorter stalks. Once the buds emerge, move them to the desired spot in your home & the flowers will open. If the stalks get too long & they topple over, a bit of twine may be used to secure them upright again. The flowering stalks may also be snipped & used as cut flowers. Expect them to last approximately 6 to 7 days.
