Indoor Tulips-Step 1 - Fill a glass container about 1/3 of the way with glass marbles or decorative rocks. Clear glass will enable you to 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 so that the tulip bulb is surrounded but not covered (think support). . .Step 3 - Pour fresh water into the container. The water shouldn't touch the bulb, but it should be very close, so that the roots will grow in.
Tulips Grown in a Glass Vase: "Tulips to be" in a wide glass vase, with a dozen or so bare tulip bulbs in the bottom. There is a little "grate" in the bottom of the vase. You simply put water in the bottom, & the bulbs sprout roots, which anchor themselves through the grate, then come leaves, then, in about 3 or 4 weeks, you have flowers!
