How to Care For Tulip Bulbs

Tulip bulbs are popular spring-flowering plants known for their vibrant, cup-shaped blooms and wide range of colors. These bulbs are planted in the fall and require a period of cold dormancy to bloom beautifully in the spring. Tulip bulbs are relatively low-maintenance, requiring well-draining soil and occasional fertilization to ensure healthy growth and abundant blooms.

How Much Light Do Tulip Bulbs Need?

For indoor ornamental tulip plants, it's best to place them in a bright location with indirect sunlight. Avoid placing them in direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves. Rotate the pot regularly to ensure even growth, as indoor light sources can be uneven.

How Much Water Do Tulip Bulbs Need?

Tulip plants prefer to be kept evenly moist but not waterlogged. Water them deeply once a week, ensuring that the soil is moist but not soggy. Reduce watering after the flowers have faded to allow the bulbs to rest and prepare for the next growing season. To prepare potted tulip bulbs for the next growing season, allow the foliage to wither and die back naturally after flowering. Once the foliage has turned yellow and dried, remove it and store the pots in a cool, dark place for the summer. In the fall, replant the bulbs in fresh, well-draining soil, water thoroughly, and place them in a sunny spot to enjoy beautiful blooms next spring.
