THE PROCESS OF GROWING TULIPS IN WATER
Start by purchasing large tulip bulbs suitable for planting and forcing at home. Pink Impression, Monte Carlo, Ad Rem, Princess Victor - there are many varieties, choose any color you like.
- Place purchased bulbs in the refrigerator for 13-17 weeks. Important! Not near the bulbs in any way apples cannot be stored, otherwise the plant may not bloom.
- Pour stones and beads into a vase, fill it with water almost completely.
Place the tulip bulbs on top of the pebbles, sprouts up. The sprouts of the bulbs must reach the water by themselves; the bulb must not be dipped in water, otherwise it may simply rot.
Place the vases of bulbs in a cool, dark place for about 6 weeks.
Finally, transfer the vases with the cherished tulips to the sunny windowsill! After 3 weeks, they will delight you with unprecedented beauty with flowering.
Of course, the planted bulbs will bloom for several weeks, not all year round. But if you plant the prepared bulbs at different times, there will be an eternal flower garden on the windowsill!
