    Okay, so I got some paperwhites and I'm loving them. Is it true there is no way I can save them or get them to bloom again? I don't like the idea of throwing the plant away.

    They are supposed to bring good luck in the new year I think after they bloom and later on after the leaves die , they could be stored and restarted in the fall ? They might need a cool down while dormant , like tulips ? Gin

    It depends on the variety - I have some planted in my backyard that grow every year, but don't bloom well because they never get cool enough. Many of the ones you get in bloom are the "one time bloom" variety.

    Yeah, I think they are. I guess I'll try and get them to bloom again anyway after these are finished. It won't hurt to try. ;3
