All that is needed is a waterproof container, some charcoal,
paperwhite narcissus bulbs and water.
No prechilling is needed.
The monkey container is painted tin. I use a large plastic
butter tub as a liner to prevent rusting. The cobalt blue
canister lost its lid. Ceramic, it doesn't need a liner.
The white pots on the potting bench shelf would be great for forcing bulbs. I use them as cache pots
as they have no drain hole. Maybe I'll put some hyacinths in them. Hyacinth bulbs are chilling until December in a refrigerator that holds no fruit, along with potted tulips.
I use river stones for support. Flat marbles
will work and add some glitter.
All are potted and water added up to the
bottom of the bulb.
the Casserole with the butterflies would make a good container
for forced bulbs if it wasn't full of alternanther cuttings.
The glass cylinders came in a kit with amaryllis bulbs
last year. I do not recommend forcing amaryllis in water.
