Well, I will give it 4 weeks. I guess that seems to be the longest I have heard.

Be patient. I had five bulbs. One sprouted in about a week. One a month later. One became a snack, one is lost and the last one... Went through a substrate move twice, a full tank move once, and now after 11 months, just all this sudden surfaced from who knows where and began to grow.
As long as the bulb stays firm it is promising. When it turns to mush, it usually will not grow and turns into dinner

Currently tankless for the first time in 24 years... Getting the itch again

I have three of them in my tank. They all took about a week to sprout. 2 of them are all ready about 3 inches tall after 2 weeks, but someone keeps eating the other one before it grows tall.

Does anyone know how long it takes for the Tiger Lotus to get its red color. 2 of mine are grwing fast but the leaves aren't red. The stems were red before leaves grew.I'm wondering if they sent me the wrong bulbs.

I just removed a tiger lotus from a bulb. Will the bulb sprout a new plant or should I throw it away.

I have 3 bulbs. One came with a little plant which broke off and is alive, but slow growing (very shaded though). A second bulb sprouted, I cut the lilly off (also stalled at the moment), and the bulb seems to be growing 2-3 plants right now. The 3rd bulb just sprouted and toor node is throuwing down a few roots and a few small leaves.

So, it seems the bulb will keep on growing plants until it's all used up.

My experience is that if the bulb sprouts reddish leaves ... you've got reddish leaves. Otherwise it's green. None of mine ever went from green to red or vice-versa.

Great photo. I have two red lotus - they have become huge!! Do you keep yours cut near the base or let them grow tall near the top? Thanks

I cut mine at the base when they get near the surface. If they reach the surface they get cooked by my lights and die.
