Why be satisfied with just the same old "Paperwhites" for indoor bloom? The same "magic" happens with these narcissus--bloom takes a bit longer, but the flowers are not white. Erlicheer is famous for its lovely double lemon yellow blooms. Any planter will do. It's easy!
How to grow Indoor Narcissus Almost everyone knows "Paperwhites," the fragrant miniature narcissus on long stems that bloom quickly indoors, much like an amaryllis. (Each bulb produces a "bouquet" of several flowers.) Like the Paperwhites, this narcissus is also from the famous "tazetta" group, and will perform just the same for you. To make indoor pots and bowls, simply arrange the bulbs in a shallow bowl or pot so they don't touch one another. Surround them with pebbles, sand, or even soil, but no soil is really needed. Be sure the bulbs are about half into the planting medium, with the top half sticking up in the clear. Then, just water. Almost instantly, the bulbs will sprout, and in just 10-12 weeks, you'll have a flurry of fragrant daffodils right there on the coffee table.
Indoor narcissus are great for making holiday gifts that will bring weeks and weeks of pleasure during the holidays or anytime during a long winter.
Thin, flat, sword-shaped leaves.
