Growing Instructions

To force indoors in a bulb vase, place bulb in the cup-shaped spot at top of vase and fill with water just until water level is touching the roots.

Place in a cool, dark location (such as a closet), making sure the soil remains damp for several weeks to ensure adequate root development. Maintain water level.

When shoot tips are visible, move to a 50ºF environment at first, gradually moving to higher temperature locations as more shoot appears and giving as much light as possible. After forcing, keep in a cool, but sunny location to finish growth.

Care Tip

Contact with hyacinth bulbs may cause skin irritation. Use gloves or handle with care. Wash hands thoroughly after planting.
