: I was given a paperwhite Ziva bulb as a gift. It's fully bloomed and still sitting in water. The flower has died but the rest still keeps getting bigger. Am I supposed to plant this in a pot and if so, will it rebloom over and over again? Or should I toss it?

Hi Karey,

You need to plant it in the ground with the top growth attached. The top growth will feed the bulb for next years growth. Plant it 6" deep and remove the foilage when it turns yellow and comes away with a gentle tug.
