Muscari (grape hyacinth) Plant Care

We've lovingly cared for these Muscari plants from their infancy as bulbs on our farm, and in this post, I'll guide you through their care with the same passion and dedication that drives our work. You might be surprised at how easy and forgiving these little fairy gardens are!

Before your Muscari bursts into bloom, ensure a strong start by keeping the soil consistently moist without overwatering. These charming plants thrive in cooler temperatures and bright, indirect sunlight. No need for fertilizer or additional amendments.
INDOOR MUSCARI PLANT
While your Muscari graces you with its delightful clusters of blue flowers, maintain adequate moisture; the soil should be moist to the touch, not soaked. Proudly display your plant, but protect it from harsh drafts and direct heat, as these conditions can harm it.

As little shoots emerge, revealing petite grape like blooms, we love cutting the delicate stems and placing them in bud vases. Of course, you can leave them on the plant as well.
MUSCARI POTS
After the bloom show concludes, which may take a few weeks, transition to post-blooming care. Gently remove spent flowers, allowing your Muscari to redirect its energy towards bulb development. As the leaves start to turn yellow and dry out, it's an excellent time to consider planting the bulbs in your garden or composting the pot and plant. We've found that trying to save these pots often leads to forgetfulness, so planting them in your garden for next year is a great option.

May your indoor garden flourish with these enchanting Grape Hyacinths. Happy gardening!
