If you have all ready began chilling the bulbs in the frig, you will need to continue to chill them for 16 to 18 weeks total.
Then you can bring them out and pot up to enjoy in this manner.
If you were to take the bulbs out of the refrig now, they would likely become soft and rot.
I have tulip bulbs in my own crisper drawer and will force them in water in a few months.
