I have forced bulbs growing in soil. Only one flower per pot has bloomed so far. Should I cut the dead flower or leave it there until the rest bloom?

    You can remove the flower part of the bulb if it is spent.
    Leave the leaves as they will grow still.
    Placing the bulbs in a warm location will encourage faster growth and blooming.
    A cooler location will extent the bloom period.
