Grow your own plant bulbs - Need advice
So, I purchased a number of these from Petco. I've only attempted 7, and so far 3 have sprouted. I'm curious as to the behavior of these bulbs, though. According to the packaging, included are an assortment of aponogeton, waterlily, barclaya, and an onion plant (which I don't plan on using). Sprouts appeared after only a few days, but one of the bulbs (or rather, the sprout) seemed to stop "growing" after awhile. Another produced a rather long... root, I guess, but when I looked at the bulb this morning, the root seemed to have mostly vanished. The third has only sprouted a little. After today's water change, I buried the bulbs - sprout-down - into the substrate, a little. I'm hoping that will help encourage the bulbs to grow a bit more. The packaging advises a 30-day waiting period. To those of you who have experience with these bulbs, what can I expect? Does any of this sound familiar? Thanks for any advice.
