Common Name: Hyacinths
How to grow and maintain Hyacinth:
Keep your Hyacinths bulbs in a dark location during cold treatment. Cover pot with a box, pot or black garbage bag if necessary. After shoots show up, move to bright light as directed above.
Pot your hyacinth in sandy soil that provides good drainage. Hyacinths can also be grown in water.
Water the hyacinth every 2 to 3 days. Try not to enable the soil to dry out completely.
Cool 45-65°F/7-18° C. Make your flowers last longer by keeping them in a somewhat cooler location. Blooms will last for 2-3 weeks if kept at a maximum of 65°F/18°C.
The most basic approach is to plant the bulbs in a bowl filled with bulb fiber. You can use a general purpose compost but you will need drainage. Water the compost or fiber before you begin.
Hyacinth bulbs that are forced into bloom indoors will not bloom a second time. They do deliver balances, which can be planted outside. In the event that you need to keep them, allow the foliage to die back naturally, then cut it back. Store the offset bulbs in a cool, dry place. Plant the bulbs in your flower garden in the fall.
