Lovely tulips

Indoor Tulips :

Step 1 – Fill a glass container 1/3 way w/ marbles or decorative rocks so you can watch the roots develop.

Step 2 – Set the tulip bulb on top of the marbles or stones, pointed end UP. Add a few more marbles or rocks, surrounding the tulip bulb but not covering it (think support).

Step 3 – Pour fresh water into the container; water shouldn’t touch the bulb, but should be very close, so the roots will grow in.

 

Love it and  Enjoy!
