It's three weeks later and here are the paperwhites from my last post. They are now in full bloom. Actually, the first blooms appeared about eight days ago. So you can see that if you plant groups of bulbs in succession, say every week, you can have something blooming in your house well into the new year.
By the way, I went to the nursery today and they still had paperwhite bulbs available. Since you're out there doing all of your holiday shopping anyway, make a quick stop by your nursery or big box store and get a little something for yourself.
