Tiger Lotus are heavy root feeders. The bulbs are perfectly round and black. The plant can be removed easily from the bulb, in fact often times it comes off the bulb by itlself. Put nitrogen and mineral tablet in the gravel under the roots for quicker growth. The more light and C02, the larger and faster the growth will be, but you have to feed this plant.
Aponogetons can not be separated from the bulb, and without a fertile substrate they will stop growing once the nutrients stored in the bulb are depleted. With moderate light, C02 and good fertilization, All Aponogetons grow to be very large plants with leaves over 2 feet long. If your plants stay small, then they are not getting enough nutrients or light and will eventually go dormant and never grow back.
