Planting a forced Hyacinths Bulb

I had a forced Hyacinths Bulb in water that was given to me a few weeks ago.  The plant did very well.  It bloomed and the leaves are now turning brown.  I still have it in the forcing vase with water.  My question:  Can I plant it in the ground now so it will bloom next year?

Most sources I've seen say you can't successfully grow bulbs outdoors after they've been forced inside, but why not try. Let your bulb die down, trim the brown stuff and let dry in a cool, ventilated spot. In Fall, stick it in and see what you get!  I'd put some bulb fertilizer in.
