    Forcing Tulips, Hyacinths

    I'd like to prechill some tulip and hyacinth bulbs and then send them to my mother in Florida to plant and 'force' there. I was under the impression that I could just put the bulbs in a cool place for 10-13 weeks, send them to Florida and THEN plant there. What I read about forcing sounds like you plant the bulbs in soil and expose the potted bulbs to cold. So, my question is this...can I just chill the bulbs out of the soil ? (I could put them in perlite if they have to be in something). I'd love some advice.
    Thanks,Cathy
