Silly daffodil question

ahelaumakaniMarch 4, 2009

This is probably a dumb question but I have no experience with bulbs.

We're doing this daffodil fundraiser at work (I'm including the link if anyone's interested) and my supervisor gave me a cut daffodil in water. It hasn't bloomed yet. Would it be possible to get it to root or should I just enjoy the flower while it lasts?

Here is a link that might be useful: American Cancer Society - Daffodil Days

Just about my favorite bulb... enjoy it while it lasts, it won't root.

Just enjoy it while it lasts. Unlike cuttings of some things, a daffodil flower stalk will not grow roots. Daffodils are grown from bulbs that are usually purchased and planted in the fall.
