    Really funny that you mention this Jordan. I got my grandma some paperwhites to force {on Saturday} and the person at the store told me to add Vodka to keep the stems at a manageable length. The idea of giving them to my grandma with a mini-bottle made both Nate and I giggle.
    P.S. They don’t sell mini bottles of vodka in Utah. Don’t ask me why.

    Jordan, we have paperwhites in our yard. When they start to tip over you just need to add more water. It keeps their stems strong. I’m sure vodka would do the trick also:)

    I also read that if you “pet” the buds daily it stops them from growing too tall. Although, I am not quite sure how that would work.

    OR you can bury the bulbs in a really simple, very tall glass vase so the heads just barely peek over the top. This way the walls of the vase keep them straight. My mom put two on her mantle and they look fantastic!
