              I'll take one please!

              I got a box of those bulbs from Petco, but none of the lilies or aponogetons sprouted. The onion plant did, but just recently the bulb came unburied and it was all gross and squishy Maybe you're not supposed to bury it? But how else do you prevent it from swimming around??

                Onion plants are only supposed to have their roots buried. I usually tie a string around them and bury the string lol.

                  Well the one pictured is the only one to be freed of the mother bulb but there are maybe 3 ready to be split off and the bulb has 2 areas where a couple new growths are appearing! Sad thing is after 2 years of only have 3 leaves I have it for 3 months and its having babies... love it haha

                  Anyways once she starts giving off more sprouts I don't mind giving them you you guys ;D I just want to be sure the mother bulb still has leaves attached so she doesn't die on me...

                      its a lilly it will make it, I had forgotten about one in a tank, was sitting in a thin film of water for over a MONTH (basically whatever was left when I dumped out the tank of the last rinse which was below the gravel and I didnt feel like dealing with it.) Realized it was a live bulb and it STILL had a leaf, tossed it in another tank and its doing fine lol

                        I will ;D oh and about your aponogetons issues... that Lilly bulb came from the same package as my brothers aponogetons bulb (sorry I am just copy and pasting that word... to lazy to spell it out..) and after i stole it fro him it grew amazingly well haha... anyways I have read that more than half of the bulbs will never sprout... sorry to hear of your bad luck... here was the last picture I took of it when my brother finally decided he wanted it back... I was mad because it was splitting into two plants...

                          I am so jealous!! That's the reason I got the box. That, and the lily! I wanted those aponogetons and lilies and all I got was an onion plant, that died after awhile Those ripply leaves are so fun.

                            I know!!! I have considered just buying a bunch of bulbs from the store and seeing what I can grow for the start... buying online is great but being able to grow it on your own just makes it more special!
