Go ahead and take a sharp knife and lop off the mushy end. And yah it's probably a lily or lotus or something...

Default Why didn't you ask the pet store what plant it was?

It's a pond lily, as for the exact type you can't tell till it grows more.

Remove the rotted areas and keep it submerged in water till figure out where you want to plant it.

You can also break it 4 different plants where the leaves are sprouting out.

They grow about 1"-2" day

Definitely looks like a lily. A tiger lily perhaps?

It's a Hardy Waterlily. Lay it down on its side, and weight it down if necessary. Don't cover the growing tips.
