Giving Paperwhites a good, stiff drink
A Tip for Growing Paperwhites Indoors
To prevent your paperwhites from getting tall and floppy, give them a good, stiff drink. Paperwhite bulbs grown in water with a 5% concentration of alcohol bloom beautifully on stems 1/3 shorter than paperwhites grown in unspiked water. Most clear liquors are about 40% alcohol (80 proof), so that works out to 1 part liquor to 7 parts water. https://www.miraclegro.com/en-us/library/small-space-gardening/growing-paperwhites-winter-flowers-can-grow-indoors
Anyone ever try this? Funny it would only impact height and not bloom output, etc.
