    The photo shows 4 large groups of flowers, indicating 4 bulbs, but there were only 3 bulbs and they didn't put out even 1/3 of the flowers the photo shows. Also we cold not imagine what the horrible smell in the house was, it smelled like urine, then we discovered it was the paperwhites. I would not have these indoors again. I bought them for my mother and grandmother, they said the same basic thing. They also had nats.

    Comments about American Meadows Paperwhite Kit:

    A gift for my 91 year old parents along with the Clown and Exotic Star amaryllis. Paperwhites are dependable and such a quick grower, they are wonderful to enjoy until the amaryllis start their growth. Fragrance is unsurpassed!

            I put this in our kitchen, on the table by the window. It bloomed quickly, smelled wonderful for weeks, and was easy to care for. I'll probably do this every year.

                I have been thrilled with other things from this company - amaryllis especially - but this product was a major disapointment - bought them for christmas gifts for teachers and couldnt give them as they were so small. Wont order again.

                      How-To Guides

                      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.
