At my kitchen window is this paperwhite bulb in a jar of rocks.  It was very slow to sprout but when it did it grew over an inch a day.  I was measuring with my thumb.  Now it has a bud preparing to open.

And look the amaryllis that I showed before put up another flower stalk with this swollen bud preparing to open soon.  The last one produced seven flowers in all.  I can't tell how many flowers will be in this one.  Stay tuned for the reveal.
