If you enjoy how Paperwhites look, but do not enjoy the strong fragrance of Ziva then the slightly scented Inbal Paperwhite are perfect for you. Like all other paperwhites Inbal does exceptionally well when planted indoors, or in a warm climate such as zone 8 or above. Inbal must be planted in soil, and do not grow well when planted in a vase with just water or rocks and water. We suggest planting 3-5 bulbs in a 6" pot for the best look. Paperwhites typically bloom within 3-6 weeks of being planted.
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.
