Walmart Sea-Life Plants Live Lily Aquarium Bulbs

While at walmart I purchased one of these today and was wondering if anyone has had luck with these and if so what is the best possible way to grow them? Are they good with betta? Angel Fish? And Cories? (These fish are not all in the same tank just trying to figure out which tank would be best for it)

they are good with any type of freshwater fish, but none of my bulbs ever grew.

I didn't get that exact brand, but the ones I got at Petsmart grew very well

I bought two packets from walmart, a lily one and regular. The lillies never grew. I had one plant grow from the others.

Well they say they are guaranteed so if there were ones that didn't sprout I would mail them in. I put the lily bulb in last night and it sunk by this morning. I hope it blooms.

I bought both the lily bulbs and apogenton bulbs from Walmart in my tank - all of them were duds. I plan on sending them back and hope the new ones I get actually sprout!

Ditto here with the lily bulbs being duds.

I got a pack from petco and one pack from walmart. I can't remember what the varieties were. I had one sprout from the walmart pack and two out of the petco pack sprouted.

Once they sprout, they grow really well!

Happy caregiver to ten male bettas and one female :)
