Yes. Those bulbs frequently have problems sprouting, but there is a trick.
Put them (dry) into a paper bag and put them in a warm place ... I use the top of my cable box. Leave them there for 3-4 days. After 3-4 days, drop them into the tank and just let them float around. When you see a sprout, push the OTHER end of the bulb into the gravel. Do not cover the bulb.
Putting the dry bulb in a warm place "wakes it." Burying it completely will make it rot.
I blame spelling mistakes on my iPad. You should too!
