So what can you do to prevent daffodil blindness?
How to Prevent Blind Daffodils from Blossoming
There are several things that you can do to avoid having your daffodils become a sad sight. Here are some tips:
1) Use proper lighting for your plants.
If you have a window with good sunlight, then use it. If not, you can always get a grow light to make up for the difference.
2) Don’t water your daffodils too much or too little.
You don’t want your plants to be drowning in water or dried up completely. Daffodils need a lot of moisture but they also need proper drainage.
3) Make sure that the temperature around your flower bulb is within the recommended range.
You don’t want it to be too hot or too cold.
4) Make sure there’s enough space between each daffodil bulb.
They need room to grow properly so they can develop strong roots.
5) Don’t plant your daffodils in a location where the soil is unstable or compacted.
You may need to add more soil to make it softer and more loose so that the roots can spread out properly and get what they need.
