Description

Here's the No. 1 Daffodil for winter bloom indoors. The famous "Paperwhite" Narcissus grows quickly, almost like magic. It blooms heavily and has a heavenly fragrance.

The green stems and leaves rise rapidly, and in just 6 to 10 weeks, bunches of highly fragrant white daffodils are in bloom, right on your coffee table--even if there's cold rain or snow outside!

Kits Include:
5 bulbs (each one puts up at least two stems with 10 to 12 flowers per stem!)

    Comments about American Meadows Paperwhite Plastic Pot Kit:

    I bought 2 earlier to test them before I bought four more as gifts. They all bloomed beautifully in about 6 weeks after planting. They smelled wonderful and lasted 3 or 4 weeks. Recipients loved them. I'm including picture if the first two blooming.

                Comments about American Meadows Paperwhite Plastic Pot Kit:

                I love planting paperwhites indoors in the wintertime. This paperwhite kit was everything it advertised. All the parts of the kit were present, and the bulbs were in good shape. There weren't any dried out or decayed bulbs, and they grew beautifully. The pot is a little lightweight. It's not a heavy-duty plastic, but it is what it is. And it's a good enough pot that I am still using it with another houseplant.

                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

                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.
