But we never showed what actually happens over the course of a week as the tightly-closed bulbs open and bloom. So we photographed??the hyacinths that we’;d plunked into a Smarta bowl from Ikea?about 5 days ago. All we had to do was water them lightly every few days.?Over days we watched the plants transform in front of our very eyes. We realized that we had actually created a tiny tabletop garden, whose subtle changes we could enjoy daily.

The key is to buy bulbs that are tightly closed and just poking through the soilpillow cases vintage, so you can watch the wondrous transformation into bloom.
