Good day. I'm sorry if this question has been asked before.
I bought three red tiger lotus and the largest one of them does not have a bulb. It has healthy roots and is already growing new leaves. My question is will it grow a new bulb? tyvm

It takes some time, but yes. Sometimes more than one. You can cut bulbs of and they will sprout new plants.
Oh, I see. Thank you very much, Sir!
Another question, Sir. Will the bulb grow below or above the substrate?
Right at the merge between the roots and the leaves' petiole. That should be half in the substrate half above. The bulb is a nutrient storage organ so as the plant is fed more than it needs it will build a larger bulb.
