"Indoor Tulips: Step 1: Fill a glass container about 1/3 of the way with glass marbles or decorative rocks. Clear glass will enable you to watch the roots develop Step 2: Set the tulip bulb on top of the marbles or stones; pointed end UP. Add a few more marbles or rocks so that the tulip bulb is surrounded but not covered (think support) Step 3: Pour fresh water into the container. The water shouldn't touch the bulb, but it should be very close, so that the roots will grow in."
