I bought three bulbs ten days ago. So far only one of mine has sprouted. I flipped over the other two in case they were upside down. Hopefully they will start growing soon. The one that has sprouted so far looks good. I'm still hopeful about the other two bulbs. Will update in another ten days or so on their progress.
(eight days later): second bulb has sprouted and the first bulb has made tons of progress growing leaves and roots. I have rotated the third bulb again in case one of my nerites had pushed it over onto the wrong side again or something. The bulbs definitely care a lot about their orientation, but once they get going they grow fast and look great.
There is no way to know if they are good until they sprout. I bought a bunch so I guess I'll see.
so far so good
I received put it into tank after letting it soak overnight from water in tank.
It still floats on top of water so i snugged small corner of plant under wood and hasn't done anything so far. 3days still no signs of it being a plant...?
Bulbs came in dry and free of mold or squishy spots. My shrimp are riding them around while the bulbs wait to drop. Have never grown these, but they look pretty in all the tanks I've seen.
None of them had sprouts when I first got them. But after 2 days 3 of them started growing some fast. Then two more took off. It's been 2 weeks and 5 of them are looking amazing still waiting for the 6th to take off. 5 out of the 6 are doing great. Maybe the 6th was a dud but for the price you can't beat it!
