Growing new Plants from Bulbs!

Growing new Plants from Bulbs

You will need: Narcissus bulb, pot and potting soil, water.

What you do:

.Plant the bulb in rich soil in a pot. Narcissus_Bulb

.Water it daily and watch for stems to appear through the soil.

.Another favorite approach is to “force” bulbs in a bowl filled with enough pebbles to hold the bulb in place.

.Add just enough water to cover the base of the bulbs.

.Set bulbs in cool (but not freezing) dark place until roots form. Then bring them to room temperature.
