How to care for hyacinths once they have bloomed?*

Once the hyacinth(s) has bloomed you can attempt to get them to bloom in the future. However, it’s important to strictly follow the directions to give yourself the best chance to succeed.

After 8 to 12 weeks of blooming, the hyacinth(s) will start to go dormant. The flowers will die, and soon after the leaves will wither. Once the flowers turn brown it’s time to cut off the entire flower stalk. If your hyacinth is placed in the glass vase or a rock garden, this is the time to move the hyacinth to a pot that includes soil. Additionally, hyacinths tend to send up new shoots each year, which mean that the plant will take up more and more space each year.

The foliage will still be green and should be left to die off naturally. In the meantime feed the plant with indoor plant fertilizer to build up more energy for the bulb to store. Don’t over water, as this will result in bulb rot. Once the leaves have turned brown its time cut down the entire plant to soil level so only the bulb and roots remain and move the pot to a cold and dark space (it may be helpful to put a bag over the pot to keep it from the light). Leave the hyacinth(s) here until the spring. Once spring arrives, slowly start to expose the hyacinth(s) to more and more light and it should start to show new shoots.
