I am planning a schedule for forcing bulbs for this next winter. I've been doing a lot of research, but haven't been able to find out how long the flowering cycle lasts. I would like continuous blooming; therefore I would like to know how often to pull out the next batch from cold storage. Can you help me?

A rule of thumb would be every week to ten days. The warmer indoor temperatures tend to cause the blooms to fade a bit faster than they would outside during a cool spring.
