Planting Instruction for your Paperwhite Growing Vase:

Paperwhite Vase

1. Fill glass with water to just beneath the bulb's roots. The water should not touch the bottom of the bulb (see water fill line below).

2. Place bulb in vase.

3. Place the vase in a sunny, warm location. Paperwhites are tropical bulbs and prefer temperatures around 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

4. If you place the Paperwhites in a cooler spot (45-55 degrees Fahrenheit) directly after planting for 3 to 4 weeks the stems will stay shorter.

5. Every week for the next weeks add or replace the water in the vase, filling the vase to the fill line so that the bulb itself is not sitting in water.

6. All flowers grow toward the light, to ensure a straight stem turn vase regularly.

7. Plant bulbs in 2 week intervals for a constant display of flowers.

Vase Kit Contains:

1 Glass Vase
1 Paperwhite Bulb that will produce several flowers
Complete Instructions

Planting Instructions for Paperwhites in soil:

Paperwhite Soil

1. Fill a pot halfway with soil or gravel, set the bulbs gently in the soil and pack more soil around the bulbs leaving the tips visable.

2. Water the bulbs thoroughly, allowing time for the soil to absorb enough water so it is thoroughly soaked.

3. Place your pot in a sunny, warm location. Paperwhites are tropical bulbs and prefer temperatures around 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

4. If you place your Paperwhites for 3 to 4 weeks in a cooler place (45-55 degrees Fahrenheit) directly after planting, they generally stay shorter which prevents them from falling over when in full bloom.

5. In 6 to 10 weeks you'll have a mass of pure white, multiple blooming Narcissus in your room. When the plants begin to flower, remove them from direct sunlight for a longer enjoyment.

      One paperwhite alone is not showy. I followed directions to chill the bulb so it wouldn't get spindly. It is. I hope it blooms in the 6 week time frame.

      Comments about American Meadows Paperwhite in Glass Vase:

      I bought these as gifts for friends and family. Two of the vases arrived broken. They were promptly replaced. The bulbs are on the small side. None of the bulbs have bloomed yet (6 weeks) so I can't comment on how they smell or how many blossoms. I did chill the bulbs for 2 weeks before starting them. No buds in 6 weeks. I hope for Christmas.

          I bought this as part of my cousin's Xmas gift. She's a "Getting Started" gardener too, and I think she'd like this.

              Comments about American Meadows Paperwhite in Glass Vase:

              Paperwhites force easy, but the long stalks are tough to manage to keep them standing. They last a good long time if you can rustle them and keep them from falling over.

              USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

              To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

              • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
              • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
