For me the growing of Tulips in the vase is one of the many charms of this typical Dutch Flower . Everyday your tulip-arrangement looks completely different . The growing is a reason for me to not mingle tulips with other flowers. Twigs and leafs are the best suggestions to mix with tulipa. And when they become too long for your idea you can always cut-off a part of the stems and ( or just not ) arrange them again in your vase.

When you buy your tulips and bring them at home , first let the tulips adjust a little bit to the room-temperature and place them still wrapped in the paper in a bucket with about 10 cm water for a hour or so before placing them in your ( glass vase is the best for tulips ) vase. By arranging them think of the about 10 cm that they grow and adjust the length.
