I have never done that. I guess I always figured I didn't have enough indoor light to make them grow straight.

It took me awhile to get at least one paperwhite bulb to bloom..almost gave up actually Big Grin On other info I read it said no chilling period required. Now I find out with others that they do keep it cool and in the dark for awhile then brought out to a sunny window. Ah I guess live and learn with these bulbs..but the end product is always a delight however long it took Big Grin Big Grin
