Tulips Grown in a Glass Vase: "Tulips to be" in a wide glass vase, with a dozen or so bare tulip bulbs in the bottom. There is a little "grate" in the bottom of the vase. You simply put water in the bottom, & the bulbs sprout roots, which anchor themselves through the grate, then come leaves, then, in about 3 or 4 weeks, you have flowers!
Siam Tulip This tropical plant, Siam Tulip (Curcuma alismatifolia) is not a tulip but a member of the ginger family. It is an easy to grow plant indoors. It is a particularly attractive plant with beautiful foliage! They are real eye-catchers so give them a prominent place in your living room. When it is nice and warm outside, it can be stood in a sheltered spot on your patio. Do bring indoors again before the first frost.
