Directions and History

A bowl of paperwhites is a simple gift blessed with an abundance of love. This Paperwhte Kit is an especially delightful gift for someone who is locked down and has been locked down for months – a senior, a chronically ill individual, even a child going stir crazy in their own home. The kit contains everything that an individual will need to grow these paperwhites except water: 4 paperwhite bulbs, a bowl to hold the bulbs and some glass beads to rest the bulbs on as they grow. There is also a complete set of directions and some history detailing the origins of paperwhites.

The Harvesting History Paperwhite Kit - Makes A Great Holiday Gift!

Paperwhites are the only bulbs that can be forced in water without a 10-12 week period of cold treatment in a refrigerator. All you have to do is arrange the bulbs in a bowl on top of a cluster of beads, stones, or gravel. Then add water to the base of the bulbs and place the bowl in or near a north or east facing window. You want to avoid placing the bowl where it will receive direct sunlight.

If you want to keep the paperwhites from getting leggy, add a solution of ¼ of a cup hard liquor (vodka, gin, etc.) and ¾ of a cup of water, to the bowl when the paperwhite sprouts have begun to turn green.

It will take 4-6 weeks for the paperwhites to bloom. When they do, the room of your loved one will be filled with a heavenly fragrance and a bouquet of clustered white flowers. It will inspire your loved one with hope and the knowledge that spring is coming.
