      Fast growth

      Purchased 2 of these non-sprouted. They were more like 3 bulbs each fused together. Within 2 days of being half buried in substrate they started sprouting multiple places. Within 10 days they now have full blown leaves directly under HOB filter.

      Healthy bulb though it is growing slower than expected

      My bulb arrived at the end of January. No rot, with the beginning of leaves peeking out. I placed it in my betta's little tank. Nothing much happened for a while, though, so I moved it into my plant-test-tank, which has more steady light. It has now been a month, and its growing better, though not very fast. It still looks healthy, so the bulb itself is fine, it is ME that's the problem! :-)

      Spent over $100 on plants and these bulbs were the only things that survived after being put into the tank. Tank is a year old , every other plant I’ve put in thrives, this business is the first time I’ve had plants completely melt in my tank.
