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
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 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.
