Betta bulbs.

Some of you have said you have betta bulbs in your tanks. I was just wondering if they are any good and if they are easy to maintain. Do they need special care and what kind of substrate do they need?

I was wondering the same!!! I look at them at Petco, and it says to just drop them in the water and they will sprout?

I have some in my new 10 gallon. Put them in there just this week and they're starting to sprout!

I just picked some betta bulbs up yesterday to try them out. The package said to drop them in the water, and then plant them once they have started to sprout. Hopefully they'll turn out all right.

If there were a way to grow plants in a bare-bottom tank, I'd go for it. :)

Mine always fungus. It's kinda frustrating. But if they grow right they can take over half a 20 gallon tank :P

I thought of trying one but don't want to end up with a mess and fungus all over everything.

Yeah I tried sprouting some in a spare bowl I had with tank water in it but it just made a mess of fungus and algae and I had to throw it all out. Didn't work at all for me.
