Q.How do I get best results from bulbs with flowers already growing from them?

Hello gardeners,

I live in the Boston, MA area, and it is now March (read: cold!). It is about to be my favorite time of year–daffodil season. I recently purchased from a local shop a glass forcing jar with a few mini-daffodil bulbs in it. The bulbs are suspended above water so the roots are just touching. The bulbs already have matured plants growing from them (6-8 inches tall by my geuss) with several blooms. How do I get the best results from these bulbs? Once the flowers naturally die, I want to save the bulbs or plant them outside so they’ll bloom next year, or perhaps save them to plant in soil for a springy houseplant.

I am an extreme novice, so any tips on how to get the best results would be appreciated!
