Tom got me an indoor hyacinth blooming kit for my birthday. The first step was to put the bulb in the fridge for 8 weeks. Because I went home for break, it ended up being around 10 weeks. As soon as I got back to school, I put the bulb in the "compressed planting mix". Today, only a few days later, the green stuff is starting to emerge:

I used to know the word for this, where the stalk starts coming out of the seed/bulb. What is it?? Oh wait: Germination! Woo. This makes me happy. I can't wait for it to actually bloom.
