My narcissus bulbs won’t grow. They are about two inches tall and won’t grow any taller. I have had them in a small amount of water (just touching the bottom) for almost four weeks now.
How can I make them grow. They are in a sunny diffused light window sill.
Thank you,

Forcing bulbs indoors requires a pretreatment with cold temperatures. If you just purchased the bulbs, ask the store if pretreatment was already done. If you are forcing paperwhites, check this webpage: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/paperwhites/forcingpaperwhitebulbs.
If another type of narcissus, check here: htmhttps://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/houseplants/forcing-bulbs-for-indoor-beauty-in-winter/
