How to force a bulb:
#1 : Bulbs need 12 to 15 weeks to sleep in the winter so they don’t grow prematurely. Find a cold place at home between 30 and 50 degrees. An unheated garage, shed, or even the vegetable crisper in the refrigerator is ideal.
#3 : Wait a minimum of 12 weeks. Then check the bulbs to see if they have healthy white roots. If your bulbs have not formed roots, don’t be discouraged just check them again at a later date.
#4: Once the bulbs have roots of about 3 to 7 cm, bring the pots in the house, place them in a bright spot and enjoy!
