Have you ever tried growing these? It’s my first time!

This set was a Christmas present,  5 bulbs, some porous rocks, a plastic liner & the box with instructions..place the bulbs on top of the rocks , set the base of the bulb into the rocks , add water..TaDa..an indoor garden!

they get quite tall, I fed them alcohol as per instructions, to stunt their growth
