Here is a wonderful ceramic hyacinth forcing vase. This hourglass-shaped vase is designed to hold the flower bulb in place while it is growing. This vase is painted white with a lovely botanical design on it in (one side only). The vase is 4 3/4 inches tall with the opening 2 3/4 inches in diameter. A pre-chilled Hyacinth bulb is included with this vase (blue or white). This can also be used as a regular flower vase.

First you need to get a hyacinth bulb and chill it. Place the bulb in a paper bag and put in the refrigerator for about 10 weeks.
When you see that the bulb has sprouted a little at the top, place it in the forcing vase that you have filled with water (just enough so the water is barely below the base of the bulb, but NOT covering it). If the bulb sits in water, it will rot. Place in a nice bright location and watch your hyacinth grow. Check the water level from time to time to make sure it is correct.

I have included some pictures showing the progress of a "paperwhite" bulb I started at the beginning of the year. I found paperwhites were too tall for this vase, but it was the only bulb I could find when looking for bulbs at the end of last year. Hyacinths are much shorter and do better in this vase.
There is a lot of information on the internet about forcing bulbs in vases.
