Getting Paperwhites to Bloom

Leaves are growing but no blooms. They are inside. I'm in zone 10. Would they do better outside?

Paperwhite, botanical name Narcissus papyraceus, is hardy in zones 7 to 10, so you can move them outside. This might help a lot since having more light encourages many flowers to bloom. Check this article for other reasons why you might not see blooms:

If it has already bloomed once, see this article:
