Where do you find these? I don't think I've seen them at Petsmart.

Two of my bulbs have recently started sprouting while the rest are just getting...fuzzy, so I separated them. Maybe I'll at least end up with two nice plants. :)

Is there any way we can prevent them from getting fungus and other nasty stuff growing on them?

I got aponogeton and dwarf lily bulbs from JoAnn who was giving them away. They sink, so you could probably grow them with now substrate. However they sprout roots so I think they will try to anchor itself somewhere. Mine grow fast but I am using liquid fertilizer and a light. I dont know if they are the same thing.. seeing as I have no clue what betta bulbs are.

i have the betta bulbs- they look like this

http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/5048/scaryspot1.jpg

that pic was taken a few months ago- they've grown out a bit. I got two different plants from bulbs that looked alike. I haven't given them plant food but they still grow just fine- i suppose there must be nourishment in their bulbs. The roots are strong and go down into the gravel. They need some sunlight- the window faces north and I keep the shade up during the day so they get some, but I have to make sure to leave it up on weekends when I go out of town because the one weekend I left it down the plants almost died. The stalks and leaves turn brown and wilt once in a while- I just reach in there and trim them so they don't clog the filter.
