Colorful hyacinths in the interior are a balm for the senses.
Her fragrance is intoxicating and cannot be compared to any other.
In the last few weeks of winter we all love to enjoy the blooms of hyacinths, but few of us know where these beautiful flowers actually come from. According to scientific reports, they come from the Mediterranean and the Orient, where they still adorn numerous gardens and parks today. In principle, these are perennial garden plants that can also be cultivated indoors. The hyacinths have fleshy bulbs that sprout early in spring. Depending on the weather conditions, this happens here in Germany between March and April.
You can admire this spectacle of color outside in the garden where the hyacinths grow in pots or flower beds.

The leaves come out first, which are narrow, elongated and somewhat inconspicuous. Then grow the flower stalks high and these can reach about 20 to 40 cm. Small, star-shaped individual flowers then develop, offering us a true spectacle of colour. These are colored in subtle white, elegant blue, strong violet and other lovely pastel tones. These delicate, colorful flowers also give off a strong spring scent that makes us dream of nice weather and long journeys.

Many hobby gardeners want to bring a fresh touch into the house before spring begins and decide to cultivate beautiful hyacinths indoors in pots. However, if you are also part of the group, you should observe the following care tips:
Location for potted hyacinths: In order to choose the right location for the beautiful flowers, you should assume that they actually prefer cooler temperatures. That's why the hyacinths in the pot don't need a lot of heat, but they do need enough light. For this reason, a location in full sun comes into question, for example on the windowsill. The pot must be filled with loosened potting soil. In addition, hyacinths grow well indoors in a wooden box, in a large soup or salad bowl that you no longer use in the kitchen, even in disused teacups. The flowers don't need much space for their roots to delight us with their magnificent blossoms.

Also in an old, disused soup bowl.
Watering and hibernation: Potted hyacinths are watered like all other spring flowers: little water, but regular watering. Don't let the soil dry out, but avoid any waterlogging, which could actually cause the roots to rot.
You can easily achieve this rustic look with an old but well-preserved window box full of hyacinths.
These spring flowers also thrive in unusable tea or coffee cups, especially on the Windowsill.
The dormant phase of these bulbous flowers begins in May, after which the watering must be stopped completely. You also have to cut off the old flower stalks. You can leave the leaves for a while. But if they turn yellow, you have to remove them as well. Potted hyacinths can overwinter in a dark and cool place, whether in the basement or in the apartment. Make sure that the room temperature does not fall below 15 degrees C in winter. During their dormant phase, the bulb flowers form new roots and shoot tips. They will sprout quickly the following spring and once again display their magnificent blooms.

- Floating hyacinths in a jar? Is this possible?
Yes, it is entirely possible to grow these beautiful bulbs in a glass jar. Incidentally, this is a special cultivation method that has been known since the 18th century. For this you need a suitable, bulbous shaped glass and a thick hyacinth bulb, which has stored many nutrients. Fill the jar with water and place the onion in it. Then it has to stand in a cool and dark place, for example in the basement, for about 10 to 12 weeks. When the flower bud comes out, you have to bring the jar to the light and put it in a warmer place, maybe in the living room or home office. So you can watch the growth of the flower every day, renew or refill the water. Only after the hyacinth has withered can you plant the bulb outside in the garden. You can expect new blooms next spring. Great idea, right?
Growing these bulbous flowers in a jar is not complicated at all.
