Another attempt of induced bulb propagation. Experimenting on daffodils. The bag on the left is bulb chipping (where you take a daff bulb and cut it up into 8 sections, first in half then quarters and so on) and the bag on left goes one step further and is bulb twin scaling (where you split the scales on each cut segment, and separate off two scales at a time) - both methods rely on the scales still being attached to a small segment of the base plate which is where new bulblets will form.

These will also go in the utility cupboard. Kept at around 20-21 degrees celsius. #bulb #bulb-propagation #bulb-chipping #bulb-twinscaling #daffodil #narcissus #narcissusicefollies

Mystery variety, but I love how the yellow colouring from the cup slightly flushes into the petals.
