Sweet! How to force tulips to grow indoors. I'm totally doing this! My forced bulbs have already started coming up, but this vase idea is so much prettier than the green plastic containers I have!
Both clean, modern furnishings and rustic country décor match bulbs forced in a clear glass container partially filled with decorative rocks, polished stones or marbles. Choose large, heavy bulbs for forcing – they’ll need all of their nutrients to grow and bloom on water alone. Gather your bulbs, container and decorative stones or beads, then follow these easy steps.
In a glass container, make a bed of polished stones or glass beads. Orient each bulb with its flat side down and position it atop the stone bed. After each bulb has been seated, fill the spaces between the bulbs with more stones. Fill the container with water to slightly below the base of the bulbs. and Enjoy.
Forcing tulips in water is a fun, easy, and a unique way to present tulips that most people have not seen before. I think showing the natural beauty of the bulb is a pure, modern, and minimalist approach to floral design. Give it a try.
