Donna, I have very often forced them this way.  I presently have paper whites 
in a crystal stem which is about 8" dia x 1' tall.  These are placed on top 
of washed pea gravel and water added but not enough to reach the bulbs.  This 
is basically the same.  I usually place paper whites in small crystal bowls 
filled with pea gravel.  Last year I did (3) for a center piece for a dinner 
    I recd a gift of Iris reticulata and a small container.  I have never 
forced this before.
