Your bulbs will produce a display of blooms in about two to four weeks. If the bulbs have begun to grow, their sprouts may be yellow and somewhat bent upon arrival. They will straighten and turn a healthy green after a few days in a sunny window.
As the plants grow, rotate the container to prevent them from leaning toward the light. Keep the soil consistently moist, but not soggy.
Paperwhites will bloom in about two to four weeks. Once the plants begin to bloom, the floral display typically lasts one to two weeks. For longest bloom, keep the soil moist and move the pot out of direct sun.
Paperwhite bulbs will not bloom again after pot-forcing and can be discarded after flowering.
