Gardening Guide Paperwhites River2u.com
Overview
Paperwhites are members of the narcissus family of bulbs. They are extremely easy to grow indoors and are traditional during the winter holiday season. They have many musky-sweet fragrant flowers per stem. Planted in groups of five to seven bulbs, the white flowers grow from 10 to 14 inches tall. The following should be considered when buying paperwhite bulbs:
  • Note how long the bulbs will take to bloom, usually 3 to 4 weeks.
  • Make sure all bulbs are dry and firm. Discard any that feel mushy.
Plant paperwhite bulbs in shallow containers in soil, pebbles or glass beads. Cover bulbs to the neck and water so that the water level remains just below the base of the bulb. Flower stems may need some staking. Once in bloom, cooler room temperatures prolong flowering time.
