nymphaea stellata bulb


This might sound like a silly question, but I have just recieved 2 nymphaea stellata bulbs and I don't know what to do with them, do i bury them or leave them on the surface of the substrate. Do i even have them the right way round? I have attached a picture. Any help would be greatly appeciated.

You have them planted right, but I would give them more space.

ditto, thats just about how you plant em, though there is no guarantee it will sprout, and when it does, no guarantee it will only sprout 1 crown, usually it comes in multiples
