They don't need to be transplanted into soil - they will grow and bloom as long as the roots are in water. Wish there was a way to time the bloom, but they have minds of their own and will bloom after they've had specific amounts of exposure to light and warm temperatures. If they don't bloom by Christmas you can simply attach a note to each one explaining that they will flower in January. I'm sure the recipients will be delighted with your gifts!
