Paperwhite bulbs do not need deep soil to grow, so you have many decorative options for bowls, dishes, vases, and flower pots for planting Paperwhite bulbs.
Our Paperwhite Growing Kits come with 1 Flower Pot, no-fuss growing medium, 5 Paperwhite Bulbs, and complete instructions, making it easy to plant right away. They also make great gifts!
- Fill a pot or dish halfway with soil or gravel. You'll want at least 2 inches of soil or gravel for drainage. Set the bulbs gently in the soil or gravel, and pack more soil around the bulbs, leaving the tips visible.
- Water the bulbs thoroughly until the soil is soaked. Allow time for the soil to absorb enough water so it is thoroughly soaked, but not soggy.
- Place your pot in a sunny, warm location. Paperwhites are tropical bulbs and prefer temperatures around 70°F. If you place your Paperwhites for 3 to 4 weeks in a cooler place (45-55° F) directly after planting, they generally stay shorter which prevents them from falling over when in full bloom. Water only when the soil is dry - too much water can cause the bulbs to rot.
- In 6 to 10 weeks you'll have a mass of pure white, multiple blooming Paperwhites. When the plants begin to flower, remove them from direct sunlight for longer enjoyment. Flowers grow toward the light; so to ensure straight stems, turn the vase regularly.
