Three simple steps to get these Christmas Flowers Blooming
- Pick a base. Paperwhites will grow in soil, gravel or water. Some selections prefer soil, so be sure to check the label.
- Monitor the Light. Set the bulbs in a cool, dark until they sprout (about a week or two): then move them to a cool but sunny spot. Regularly rotate the container so the paperwhites will grow evenly towards the sun.
- Wait it Out Expect to see blooms in four to six weeks. Stagger the plantings so you can enjoy fresh flowers all through the season.
