    I bought this on a whim and only one of the three bulbs sprouted. I understand from other internet sources that the company is great about returns, so I'm doing that.... BUT... the one that spouted is AWESOME! This is after about 30 days or so, but it grew really fast. I also have the Lily Bulb and it's great too. The leaves are large with beautiful dark red color.

    I bought a pack of these for my 14 gallon tank. When I put them in a couple of them went down instantly while the others just floated around, but after a few days they to eventually sank. Only one of them actually grew, the others grew what looked like mold on them & they smelled rotten so I took them out & threw them away. I bought a 50lb bag of special plant substrate from Dr. Foster & Smith called Eco-Complete which helped alot, along with lots of light. Within a few months, it went from a tiny bulb sprout to a very pretty, tall aponogeton plant, it grew to the top of my tank. You might have to buy a few packs to get a few plants, but they do grow. It's alot easier to just buy or order plants that are already grown, but this way does work.

    Make sure you bury these in substrate or small gravel/rocks for them to grow well. I put them all in a little mesh bag made from a recycled mesh onion bag from the groc store, so I could keep them all together to see what they did. I first let them bobble around on the bottom of the tank, but then noticed everytime there was a sprout somebody nibbled it off. Then stuffed them in the chimney of the little ceramic "house" in the aquarium. They sprouted in about 4 days and grew well up to the surface of my 40 gal. tank in about 5 weeks. They had outgrown the chimney so I removed them and stuck the roots under a rock and gravel so it would anchor itself. That made them really grow!! My Koi eat the roots so I have to hide them from them. This is a bargain for live aquarium plants if you can stand to wait a few weeks. I bought more just to start in a window sill and then transplant later when they are big beautiful plants!.

    Bought this and tried all 5(?) bulbs, only one sprouted. The rest were dumped after a couple weeks of nothing (a little fungus yeah). The one plant I got is wonderful. I have it in the 1.5 Gallon Tetra Aquarium Cube Tank (also sold here) with just 3 small goldfish in the tank. The plant is doing great and growing huge on my desk. It is somewhat near a window but not in direct sun, just the little LED on 8 hours a day. This plant keeps my tank balanced as my nitrate reading is near zero showing it is eating the fish waste as fertilizer. Considering the low cost of this item I am happy with 1 plant per package.

    After looking at prices for live aponogeton, I decided to try these bulbs. There were 6 bulbs for the 1/2 the price of one live plant (not including shipping). Three of the bulbs are sprouting after 4 days and the others look promising. Even if 3 are all I get out of this pack, I'll buy more of them. It's great value and I get to watch them grow!

    When I go to clean my aquarium, what method is best utilized so that I do not damage/destroy my plants?
    by USMCblackninja 10/3/2008

    • A. get a gravel vacuum, and gently vacuum the gravel. do not completely empty your tank. do not wash the ammonia remover with hot water or with tap water (actually do not clean it that much at all). once you have a good set up (fish - plant ratio). you do not need to clean your tank much. all you have to do is to vacuum gravel perhaps once a month, and take about 20% water out of the tank (possibly when you are vacuuming) and put fresh water in.

    • A. I use a siphon tube and have not had any trouble. I'm pretty slow, gentle, and deliberate so as not to damage the leaves, but it does seem to take some abuse as I moved it from one aquarium to another. It didn't seem to bother it.

    • A. I would do much less gravel syphening with these. These plants are actually eating a lot of the nasties that settle in your gravel!

    • A. If you have an established aquarium eco system, you really shouldn't have to do much except, partial water changes (25%) once a week and a 50% change once very 4-6 weeks. Maintain a good mechanical/biological filter system. Get a good gravel vacuum and you won't have to uproot your plants. Just vacuum as much of the gravel you can working around your plants. The plants can use some of the waste in the gravel as fertilizer anyways. If you really have to move your plants, try not to tear or rip on the roots.

    • A. you a aquarium vacuum, they are not electronic, it works with gravity to create suction. When doing so you will need a large bucket. This will clean the gravel and remove some water.

    • A. First off, what cleaning are you talking about? Cleaning off algae, cleaning the gravel? What I do when I clean my gravel is to find out where the roots of the plants are and make a circle around it with one of my hands (yes, I'm not afraid to stick my arm, up to my elbow, in a fish tank) and use my other hand to siphoon clean the gravel. As for algae, I don't have that problem. It's a good and healthy way for your fish to get its greens.

    • A. I would use a siphon to clean the gravel and just be very gentle around the plants. After all, you're taking their food away when you clean the tank.

    • A. The best way to do this is using a NON Battery operated gravel vacuum. Then it will gently clean the gravel but still suck up the YUCK on the tank. I even used it to clean the leafs on plant when they're dirty.

    • A. A small aquarium vaccum hose would be best so that you can clean around them. You are not supposed to fully empty and refill your aquarium. They will also be fine though for a few minutes to take them out of the water if you are for some reason doing a total empty and refill. You can just put them back into place however you like when you are done. These are hardy plants and will grow like weeds.
