One of my bulbs are refusing to sink. Is this normal?

I bought a pack of aponogeton from walmart a few weeks ago. Only 1 of the 4 bulbs grew, but boy did it grow! It was just a few pathetic leaves about 3 inches tall when I left for vacation, but when I came back just a week later it took over. :) I'm kind of glad only 1 of them grew, I don't know what I'd do if I had 2 or 3 of this plant in my 5 gallon.

As far as the sinking, all of my bulbs had sunk right away, but I'd assume if it had been dry for a long time it would take a while to soak up enough water to sink....but then I'm the furthest thing from an expert.

I have a feeling the unsinking one is dead. Is this possible?

Floating bulbs are in fact dud bulbs. Usually on the back of the package it will have an address that you can send in your bulbs for a new one.

or just return to the store. I had one that floated about halfway, and it finally sank and grew, and then died with 2 tiny leaves on it. Probably my fault.
