from petsmart says "BETTA BULBS: Live plants for your betta bowl" come 3 in a pack cost me two bucks i believe

the first one i had actually plated directly in the tank but did not grow at all, so i took about half a small plastic cup of water from the tank and put the bulb in there after a about a week or so a small sprout started, so i planted it sprout up in the tank ever since them it has doubled each day.

And here I was told by some local guys that betta bulbs just caused mold and fungus issues. Interesting. perhaps I'll give this a try again.

honestly i could see that happening if you try to grow the bulb from day 1 in the tank, which i tried but didn't work best method is to let it sit in a plastic cup with half tap/half tank water for about a week and half them once the root starts coming out plating it root side up in the tank

Yeah, those Aponogeton (u-pon-o-JEE-tun) grow like mad when they finally start.

After they sprouted in water, I just threw mine into the tank. They rose up and float near the top with the roots hanging down. The fish love it. They sleep in there.

Mine threw out several longish runners which tipped out in white flowers, emergent.

Read up on them. They're a really interesting (and beatiful) plant.

My "Bette Bulb" package also included a lovely reddish "water lilly" (they call it) which mostly stays near the bottom, unrooted. They like to sit on, under and swim around it. Just lovely.

I'm running less than 50% success on my bulbs, but the results are still very much worth it.
