To grow paperwhites outdoors, plant them any time from fall through spring. The leaves supply the energy the plant needs to produce flowers during thenext season. In warm climates, paperwhites are less demanding than other narcissus varieties. With this minimal care, they'll come back from year to year.

What do you do with paperwhite bulbs after they bloom? Keep Them in PotsAbout six weeks after the paperwhiteblooms, turn the pot on its side and store it somewhere where it will not freeze, such as a garage or basement. In the fall, turn the pot upright, place it in the sun, water the bulb thoroughly and continue watering until the paperwhite blooms again in the spring.
How do you care for a narcissus after it blooms? After daffodils bloom in the spring, allow the plants to grow until they die off. Do NOT cut down earlier. They need time after blooming to store energy in the bulbs for next year's bloom. To remove the dead plants, either snip them off at the base, or twist the-leaves while pulling lightly.
How do you care for bulbs after they bloom? After the bulb flowers have faded, deadhead the plants by removing faded blooms so that they won't waste energy producing seeds.
