The secret ingredient for strong and straight stems (see below).
Soak the bulbs with the roots down in warm water (you can add some growth regulator, but it is not necessary). 2 hours are enough.
Distribute a layer of pebbles in the bottom of the vessel. Place the bulbs with the roots down and attach them with another layer of pebbles.
Pour water into the container so that it barely touches the place of future roots. Do not pour the entire bulb, as it may begin to rot before germinating.
Keep the container away from the light shelf. When white roots appear, you can add more water.
Keep an eye on the fluid level in the vase – the bulbs grow quickly and drink plenty of water.
Green leaves should appear after a few days. Now you can move the vase to a bright and warm place.
How to prevent softening and falling the stem? Add alcohol to the water
20% al. = 3 parts water to 1 part alcohol
25% al. = 4 parts water to 1 part alcohol
30% al. = 5 parts water to 1 part alcohol
35% al. = 6 parts water to 1 part alcohol
40% al. = 7 parts water to 1 part alcohol
If the water is stagnant, the vase can be placed under running water and rinsed.
Bulbs of Narcissus can be planted on sand or small pebbles in shells of eggs. A similar “pot” can be decorated with moss or decorative grass. Such sweet spring compositions can be served as a gift for Easter.
