Stupid Apon Bulbs

I know the prepackaged apon bulbs are crap. But I've never had a complete package fail.

I picked up one of the packages at Petco that had 4 bulbs and 3 rhizomes (wonder what those would have been) 3 weeks ago. Not a one of them has sprouted after 3 weeks in the tank.

I had to take two out because they were fungussing.

I love apons. I guess I'll have to try again.

I have had that happen twice already. I'm going to take mine out and send it back since they say they will send new ones if germination does not occur.

Somebody set us up the tank!

I keep a few packages of different bulbs in a breeder tank inside my 10g. It has taken a few almost 2 months to start showing signs of life. From my experience, 3-4 out of 5 will eventually start to grow.
