I thought for sure that yesterday’s tulip would have opened up today…it didn’t, at least not all the way. It unfurled a little more, but that’s about all. I took a sheet of yellow-orange tissue paper out and blocked out the dirt in the pot. I also used a small, white diffuser to keep the sun from shining directly on the tulip or the tissue paper. No mirrors or water today, but if I remember, tomorrow I’ll spray some water on it (or some glycerin drops).
