Question Live Plants

I added a live aquarium plant, there were several bulbs in the package, I put them in different areas of the tank with the exception of the one bulb. It floats, should I wait and see if it will sink? Or should I remove it? If I wait til it sinks, then should I remove it before adding Red into the tank.

I cant remember exactly how long it was. i think they pop up rather fast. Ive never had any bulbs float. dont think they need anything to help them grow faster.

I have 6 bulbs in my 10 gallon tank, but one of them won't go to the bottom. the pacage I have says they will grow 6" to 8" in 15 days and in 3 or 4 wweeks they will have white and pink blooms. The plants are hybrid aponogeton bulbs from wal mart

yes thats the same ones Ive had before. seems like they grew a bit faster. but guess it was 15 days or so. I remember having to trim them when they grew tall. I have a five gallon for the betta. hed love them. and the ten gallon. would be good in there again.

Red is mad at me right now, I had to take him out of the 10 gallon tank to set up the new one, and right now he's in a 1/2 gallon. I feel so bad. I'm thinkn about taking that one bulb out and putting him in now.
