You may already know this. Way back in October I planted some paper whites, these two little bulbs just sat there and the rest of them bloomed and are gone. These seemed to have little green tips but they never grew. I took them out and placed them in some jars..........nothing. Then I kind of remembered to take a paring knife and stab the bottom of the bulb. It was worth a try. This is what happened in less than a week.
