Paperwhite Forcing Kit
Forcing paperwhite bulbs is a timeless way to welcome the holiday season into your home. When bulbs are forced indoors, they're awakened from dormancy and prompted to produce beautiful plumes of fragrant flowers. Our kit makes this easy, providing a simple glass vase, natural tumbled pebbles and a paperwhite bulb which has been properly conditioned for forcing.
Simply nestle the bulb in the glass vase atop a layer of pebbles. Add water, and within a few days, roots and foliage will begin to grow. Within a few weeks, the plants will produce strongly fragrant clusters of white flowers.
Paperwhites are closely related to daffodils and prized for their beautiful, delicate flowers. We've selected one our favorite paperwhite cultivars, Narcissus 'Ziva,' for its pure white flowers and quick bloom time. After forcing, keep bulb in a cool dry place, and re-use next year!
Kit includes one paperwhite bulb, tumbled pebbles and glass vase., along with instructions for bulb forcing and care.
Vase measures 6" H x 3.5" W
Please note that pebble color may vary depending on availability.
Bulb was in GREAT condition when it arrived and sprouted/grew quickly! love the glass vase that came with it too. Only thing is they gave me the wrong pebbles and what i received really didn't look pretty because they were always looking really muddy. Pistils did give me a partial credit though which was great. Very happy with the paperwhite!!
Love love LOVE this kit!! It's the perfect size for a nice holiday gift for people hard to shop for, office gift swaps, or just because! So easy to set up and the directions are impossible to mess up. Definitely buying more soon. Can't wait to smell them in a few weeks!!
Grew quickly and added some much needed color and greenery during a cold winter. I have never forced paperwhites before, I usually force amaryllis in the winter. These grew quickly but be warned, you may not like the fragrance. I frantically cleaned my kitchen to identify the rotting garbage smell that wouldn't disappear - turned out to be these. They're beautiful and may smell better to you :))
