Were your tulip bulbs forced over the winter? Is that why they are in water?

If that is the case, forced bulbs rarely bloom again. You can just discard them.

Planting tulip bulbs now could lead to fungus or disease. Tulips need 12 to 14 weeks of cold weather and ideally you would plant them about six weeks before the first frost to give them time to establish roots. It would be far too soon to plant them now.
