Q.Paperwhite forcing

Zone 02828 | kgdflorida added on October 18, 2017 | Answered

So when I put them away for in a dark cool place for 2 weeks with the water just touching the bottom of the bulbs, don’t water again until I take them out into the sun?

You don't want enough water that it will be sitting in it at all. You will just want enough water for it to reach the bottom of the pot without pooling up. It is best to try and carefully pour out any extra water if you accidentally put too much. When you move it out in the sun, then you may water as it dries, and needs it.
