Paperwhites are one of the easiest bulbs to grow indoors. The bulbs have already been given the necessary period of cold temperatures before they are sold so all you need to do is plant them in a container of some sort and water. In a couple of weeks you’ll have clusters of sweet, white, star-shaped flowers. This process of getting flowers to bloom indoors in the winter is often called “forcing”, which hardly seems the case with paperwhites. No forcing needed, they are willing participants.
