Two of the four paperwhite bulbs I planted several weeks back are pushing themselves out of the soil. I placed them all so that 3/4 of the bulb was under the lightweight growing mixture that came with them. Yet, the two that are uprooting themselves are now so high that half an inch of root is exposed under the bulb; yet, they continue to grow and are setting buds. Any explanation for this behavior? Should I try to cover them with soil again?
I purchased blooming paperwhites before Christmas. The blooms have died, but the plant is still green. What do I need to do to save the plant/bulb? I live in central Florida, but still get some freezing temps. My yard is mostly shady with a lot of oak trees. Can I plant them outside after the danger of freeze, or can they stay in a pot like I do my amaryllis?
My husband and I dug up some Paper White Narcissus bulbs a few days ago (early March) from his grandmother’s house and want to keep quite a few, but give some away. How do we care for them until we decide where to plant them?
Do you save paperwhites after they have bloomed?
Can you plant a paperwhite bulb after a forced bloom?
My paperwhites have bloomed forever, yet for the last two years have come up beautifully but don’t bloom anymore. Why?
