A few days before Christmas, I decided I should try to grow some paperwhites. I bought one of the last boxes of bulbs at a Whole Foods in Atlanta, and when I got home I carefully planted them. Following package directions, I put them in growing medium and then placed them in the cool garage for two weeks. Here are some early results!
Just as promised, after two weeks some leaves appeared, and soon enough I had flowers!
They're temporarily in a large teacup planter on the dining table.
Strong roots appear to have developed, and I can't get over how easy these are to grow!
I've read these can be transplanted to the garden pretty easily, so when the blooms have run their course I'll give them a new home outdoors. If you have any advice in this area, please chime in!
