I saw a blog in which hyacinth pots contained a succulent.
I just happened to have a tray of Graptopetalums rooted.
I gave each Pink Pearl bulb a companion Ghost Plant.
Leaves always get broken off Ghost Plants when they're handled.
I tucked every little leaf into a pot. Pots need some sheet moss to cover the
soil. I will wait until there's more growth.
In just a day, a third of the bulbs are showing a green tip.
Most had white roots beginning to sprout in the bag before
I took them out of the refrigerator.
These are 4" pots, room for a single bulb and a companion
Rosette or two of Graptopetalum.
There were only 21 pots so the last four are potted in a
larger pot. I saw some fine moss growing in front of the
tractor shed that I'll tuck in that pot later.
These were labeled to complete 10 weeks of chill on December 14. I took them out a week early.
There are still 25 White Pearl to be potted. I'll pot them in groups in larger pots since I used up
all the 4: pots. I need to start collecting pots earlier next year.
Wednesday I should receive 3 more Amaryllis bulbs. I've given up Paperwhites.
Are you forcing any bulbs this winter? They're not only for Christmas. A fragrant bloom mid-January or early February is a spirit raiser. I no longer force in water. I favor soil planting.
