Supplies Needed to Plant & Give Paperwhites Christmas Gifts

Step by Step Instructions for How To Make Paperwhites Christmas Gifts

Step One – Fill Your Flower Pot

Fill your flower pot or Ball Jar with about an inch of stones. 

Place your Paperwhite bulb up in the center of the pot.

Add potting soil to the rest of the flower pot under an inch or 2 from the top.

Step TWO – Water Your Paperwhite Bulb

Add water to help the bulb grow. 

Continue to water your Paperwhite at least once a week checking to see if the soil is dried out.

If the soil is dry, then you need to water.

If the soil is still moist wait a few days before watering.

Step THREE – Wait 3 Weeks for Your Christmas Paperwhites to Bloom

It will take about 3 weeks to force your paperwhite flowers to bloom.

I usually plant mine Thanksgiving weekend so they will be ready in time for Christmas break.  

The Paperwhites will bloom for a few more weeks and add a delicious smell to your home & gorgeous Christmas decor!
