Bulb Dia is 2.5 inch (1 inch > than purchased) and may consisting next year leafs, flower bud and visible smaller daughter bulb attached. What comes in next year from its developed embryo and how it can be stored till November, any one have experience?
I wrapped plant in news paper and kept temporary at dry place.

@ Asim: your efforts are very promising , please if you can separate the Tulip posts and generate a new post with the same subject, it would be easy to search and track it.

Total active life cycle of this tulip cultivar is less than three months (chilling period is unknown, 2 weeks to emerge, 4-5 weeks growing to flower, 4 weeks to drying /bulb development). Both bulb found in division and both detached carefully. Double pink has more big bulbs.
Is it all due to new cultivar technology ? or bulbs were treated special, will prove next year growth.
