1 bulb with 6 noses

Carla1(5)December 6, 2009

I bought an indoor paperwhite (daffodil) kit that contained four bulbs, one pot and a potting soil disk. I planted according to instructions and they're doing really well so far. Three of the bulbs have three noses/shoots each and one has six coming up. The 6-nosed bulb was the same size as the others (which all appeared to be singles before being planted). I've looked online and haven't found much information about anything beyond triples. Has anyone heard of one bulb producing six (or more) shoots?

I had one with 5 sprouts, once, but it had two noses.

Oh, ok. I thought each sprout was one nose. Therefore, it probably isn't a 6-nosed bulb.
