Bulb Forcing Update

You may recall that I bought and tried to force some bulbs several months ago. I have updated once or twice that the bulbs have not been progressing. A couple of weeks ago, I figured out why. I'm incredibly embarrassed to admit this, but I had them upside down. How loud of a "Duh!" can we get here? Once I got the cobwebs out of my head and turned them the right way (duh!), they've been progressing nicely. In addition to the original paperwhites, I've now added some bluebells, too. Neither of them required time in the refrigerator first. The other three types I have, hyacinths, crocuses, and striped squill, all require time in the fridge before forcing them, so they won't be started for another month or so.
