They have low sprouting ratios. So of the pack you bough count yourself lucky if more than one sprouts. HOWEVER the price is pretty good even for just one plant and they have the ability to grow like weeds. They are most likely a type of apongeton or lily. I bought a lily a while ago. neither of the 2 bulbs have sprouted so I will probably end up throwing them out.

PS. Sprout them in a different container of water than your fish is in. you dont want a rotteng moldy bulb in your tank...

If it has white, fluffy-looking stuff on it, take it out. It's not going to sprout. I have had no luck with them, they all rotted in my tank.

Actually, when i did research on them people said this commonly happened. So they may still sprout. Thats why I said to try it in another tank.

Any luck with the bulbs? I'm thinking about doing the same thing, just curious if it worked for you at all.
