Greensboro, NC --  They may be the easiest thing you can plant.  That's why the GMS anchor team is having a Paperwhite planting contest.  It's a little friendly competition between the anchors to see who's looks best by the first week in December. 

To plant a paperwhite, all you need is a glass, gravel, water and a bulb.  You don't even need dirt!  Here's how you do it:

  • Get a small but sturdy glass
  • Add gravel
  • Put the bulb in the top
  • Fill with water up to the bottom of the bulb.  You want it to just barely touch the bottom.
  • Keep it watered

That should be all there is to it.  There is usually a flower in 4-6 weeks. 

The anchors will be left to care for their flower on their own.  On December 4th, they will present their flower for judging.  Whoever has the best looking plant wins!
