Paperwhites are easy to grow and provide elegant white blooms just when you need them most. Pot a few paperwhites now to enjoy as a Thanksgiving centerpiece and continue potting them in succession for indoor blooms all winter. They take approximately 4-6 weeks to bloom and require nothing more than water and sunlight. Paperwhites will grow in just about any container that holds water - a shallow bowl or a tall, clear vase. Fill your container with small gravel, glass marbles, sand or soil and place the bulbs, leaving the nose exposed. Add water until the water level reaches just below the bulbs crowd them together, nearly touching. To keep them short and strong, they need bright sunlight
