The winter season can feel long and dark, but one way to make it less dark is to bring onion plants inside. For a long time, it has been a tradition to bring hyacinth bulbs indoors and drive the flowers forward and enjoy the scent when it springs out.
USE YOUR GLASS VASES WITH FLOWER ONIONSIf you want to bring the beautiful flower bulbs inside, the favorite is the classic hyacinth bulb, which will bloom quickly at room temperature. However, there are many different flower bulbs, so feel free to try different varieties. Here is our mini guide for using our vases with spring onions.
HOW TO DO IT
- Take the onion out of the ground and free the roots from the worst soil.
- Rinse the roots in water so that the soil remains.
- Put the onion in a vase so that only the roots are covered with water.
- The onion itself must not be left in water as it rots.
- Change water occasionally
If you want to speed up the flower process, you can make a paper shop and put it over the green. The lifespan in water depends both on the temperature inside and how far into the flowering the bulb is, but if you buy it with buds, they can easily last up to 7 days in the living room.Common to them all is that after flowering you can dig the flower bulbs down outside and hope they come up next spring.
CARING FOR FLOWER BULBS - INDOOR
Place the pot cool, a warm placement will shorten the life of the onion.
Water when the soil dries out but be aware that the onion must not be overwatered as the onions will then rot. It is hard to say how often an onion should be watered as it depends on the temperature inside.Do not fertilize your flower bulbs as they have plenty of nutrients in the bulb itself.
HYACINTHS IN THE WINDOW SCREEN
It's obvious to use your Studio About vases to propel hyacinths and other spring onions. The beautiful roots at the bottom of the bulb are exciting to look at and through the stained glass for those lives. Watch the video in the article on how we prepare the onion for a glass vase.
The scent of hyacinths is very distinctive, style it in your bathroom and enjoy the scent when you come out of a relaxing bath. The beautiful plant thrives in a cold windowsill without direct sunlight.
MOVE YOUR FLOWER ONION IN THE GARDENCommon to all bulbous plants is that they thrive best outside, in the cold. However, they bloom so beautifully inside as well that it is worth every second that they are placed inside. Once the bulb has flowered, it can be put out on the balcony in a pot or in the garden, where it will germinate again next spring.
Please note, that when choosing to expose the bulb to soil it shortens the life of the plant.
