Chain stores sell "Betta Bulb Plants", but I have no idea what they really are.
The plants Petco sells are actually pretty good. I have gotten some great plants from them. Just be sure you are getting real aquatic plants and not something they are selling as an aquatic plant that is not.
I have never seen any "bulbs". Most aquatic plants spread by reaching out with runners. Also, especially with stem plants, most growers just cut the stem and re-plant when trimming.
