have any of you bought the plant bulbs at walmart?
I just purchased a package of plant bulbs from walmart. The package says they are hybrid aponogeton bulbs. It says they are easy to grow and only need to be dropped into the tank. It says they will be 6'' to 8'' tall in 15 days and in three to four weeks they should have white and pink flowers. I have never bought aquarium plant bulbs before. Have any of you bought these bulbs from walmart? What has your experience been like with them?
I've bought them and the tiger lotus, and have had good results with both. Another good thing is that there is a guarantee, I've heard that people who have sent the bulbs that didn't sprout back that they received even more of them back to compensate. Some of them seem to take a lot longer to sprout than others.
In the pet department. In the fish section. I could never find them at my local walmart either. I read that walmart is going to stop selling fish and fish supplies in a lot of their stores soon. That's why I got the bulbs while I was out of state. I flew them home in my baggage with me.
I bought them several years ago and, if memory serves, almost all of them sprouted.
However, in the last 2 months I have purchased 2 packages of aponogeton bulbs and 1 lilly, and only 1 apono sprouted. I sent them to the return address with my reciepts about 2 weeks ago. We'll see if I get replacements.
I still haven't recieved my replacement bulbs in the mail. I am starting to think they won't come, even though the package said replacements would be mailed "immediatly." If you really want aponos, I ordered some from freshwateraquariumplants.com along with a plant package. My order was for 4, I recieved 7 or 8, and all of them sprouted but 1.
