Yes it is molding. if I were you I would take the bulb out and put in a bowl of water to let it sprout.

Wait we are talking about water lilies right and not land lilies?

If you look on the package it says you can return them to the manufacturer. I did this with my aponogeton and lily bulbs because most molded over, they sent me a bunch! All of the ones they sent me grew, and had no dormant periods.

I don't see any green sprouts yet but i do see some bumps sticking out. How long did it take you to get them sprouted?
