    Heyo,

    I have been chilling one Darwin Hybrid tulip bulb in a paper bag inside my refrigerator for about 8 weeks now as an experiment.

    I'm wondering what next steps I should take in forcing it. I've read a lot of different things and am uncertain.

    Do I need to wait 4 more weeks in chilling? Do I plant it in a pot in my garage ~ 10*C to develop roots?

    Thanks

    I've never been able to force tulips to do anything myself - they always do what they want.

    I'd think surfing "tulips forcing" and the like would bring up lots of recipes. I do know they are usually potted up right at the beginning.
