I'm also going to experiment and try the thing that the researchers at Cornell came up with - if you wait a week after starting the bulbs and replace some of the water so that there is a 4-6% solution of alcohol, the plants will grow 1/3 or 1/2 shorter than they ordinarily would...which is great since mine always get *so* tall and try to flop over! The PDF for "pickling your paperwhites" is here.
