Tulip can be grown in parks as ornamental plant and cut flowers, or possibly in protected areas for cut flowers during winter and earlyspring.An important condition for the successful cultivation of tulips is the quality of the bulbs that are going to be planted and theirbiological preparation.Under the quality aspect bulbs have to be uniform and large, preferably with circumference greater than 11 cm and must have goodphytosanitarical status.Preparation of organic bulbs for ensuring the continuation of the differentiation process of germs (floral), is made during the storage.It is known that the preparation of organic bulbs are made in interaction with environmental factors, among which temperature plays animportant role. At the beginning and throughout the process of biological preparation, temperature is maintained at a higher level then thetemperature must be low until planting.The temperature level and the duration of treatment varies by followed objective respectively early or late flowering and staggeredflowers production over a longer period of time.
