Forcing a bulb

Ok... I've never forced bulbs before but I'm trying it for the first time. It's kind of nice to be growing something when the snow's still flying.
I'm in a little competition with a friend of mine over whose is going to bloom first. I'm glad I didn't wager anything because mine is lagging. Haha. If I remember right, mine is a Hyacinth. My friend's are Paperwhites. Wonder if I gave mine fertilizer if he'll sprint to the finish line? (snickering to myself)..
