Answer: This is in fact a small, early blooming daffodil. You should be able to plant it in the garden and enjoy it for years to come. First off, keep it in a very bright location and as cool as possible (55 degrees is ideal), and enjoy the flowers. Once the flowers fade, remove the bloom stems. Keep the foliage growing as healthy as you can, and use a water soluble fertilizer according to the label instructions. Alternatively, you could plant it outside this spring when the soil is workable. Eventually, the foliage will fade and can be trimmed off. The bulb will go dormant for the summer and can be planted in the garden in the early fall. It may take the bulbs a year to settle in before it will bloom again because the forcing process is a bit stressful on the bulb.
