Add some fragrance to your home this winter with our Ziva Paperwhites. These flowers love to be in containers and will bloom indoors and give off the sweet smell of the holiday season. Ziva is a no fuss, fast blooming cultivar. Just add water and wait for the lovely fragrance of Paperwhites to fill your home!
Paperwhites in a glass on pebbles:
Fill the glass with water to just beneath the bulb. The water should not touch the bottom of the bulb. Place the glass in a cool (5-10°C), dark and ventilated spot. When the buds are 5 cm high (after 10-12 weeks) the glass can be placed in full daylight at normal room temperature. Turn the glass occasionally partly, as the flowers will grow towards the light.
Paperwhites in a ceramic pot with soil:
Fill the pot with 5/6 of the potting soil. Press the bulbs, with the tips pointing upward, firmly into the soil and cover with the remaining soil so that the tips of the bulbs are just showing. Keep the soil moist but do not overwater. Place the pot in a cool (5-10°C), dark and ventilated spot. When the buds are 4 cm high (after 12 weeks) the pot can be placed in full daylight at normal room temperature. Turn the pot occasionally partly, as the flowers will grow towards the light.

Very pretty paperwhites!
Ordered many bags of 5 each for forcing. Out of the entire order, only 1- 2 bulbs did not look viable bur planted anyway. I have them under grow lights b/c an indoor source of strong daylight is limited
in winter All bulbs are showing signs of growth.
The bulbs were small but firm. Some are already sprouting after I placed them into pots of good organic soil and just left them on my patio. Looking forward to seeing them grow.
These bulbs arrived in excellent condition and were twice the size of the paperwhite bulbs purchased at my local garden store. They grew quickly in different indoor environments and the blooms had a strong, classic scent. Very pleased.
These bulbs got me through the winter months. I have purchased several times since to force indoors.
