Problem with forcing Hyacinth bulbs in water.

16 years ago

Please someone help! I have no Idea what I'm doing wrong. I'm trying to grow my hyacinth bulb(which I chilled for the right amount of time) in water I have plenty of roots I would say about 14in long and they are starting to twist and turn in the jar.The problem is nothing seems to be growing out of the tip of the bulb.There are no signs of green trying to break through or any type of growth except for the roots.Do I just need to be more patient or do I need to toss it and start over?
