Can hydroponic bulbs be used again?

Asked March 13, 2016, 1:32 PM EDT

I received a lovely gift with hydroponic tulips in a glass vase. They bloomed for about 10 days and started to fade. Can they be dried off and replanted? I am afraid I waited too long to ask because there is some mold starting on the bulb. We live in central Florida so I'm not sure how easy it is to plant tulips here anyway. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi, tulips don't grow here because we don't receive enough cold temperatures through the winter to initiate flowers the next year. So, the fact that there is some mold doesn't even matter!

Thank you.
