HOW TO GROW LIKE A PRO

Southern Living (USA) - - Home & Garden -

Three sim­ple steps to get these Christ­mas flow­ers bloom­ing 1. PICK A BASE Paper­whites will grow in soil, gravel, or wa­ter. Some se­lec­tions pre­fer soil, so be sure to check the la­bel.

2. MON­I­TOR THE LIGHT Set the bulbs in a cool, dark spot un­til they sprout (about a week or two); then move them to a cool but sunny spot. Reg­u­larly ro­tate the con­tainer so the paper­whites will grow evenly to­ward the sun.

3. WAIT IT OUT Ex­pect to see blooms in four to six weeks. Stag­ger the plant­ings so you can en­joy fresh flow­ers all through the sea­son.
