I got these Betta Bulbs today and I know they don't always grow, but I figured I might just try it. What is the best way to go about planting/growing them from a bulb for the best possible results?
THANKS!

Plant 1/3 of the bulb in the tank substrate and wait. Its hard to tell which orientation is 'up' on the bulb if it doesn't already have roots..

Do i keep the lights off until the bulbs sprout? (This is a new tank and it's being used for sprouting these bulbs, so I can keep lights on or off.)

The light will help them grow, just like any seedling.
What species are they? Aponogeton, Crinum, or Nypheae?
Also, they often have a guarantee to replace any bulbs that don't sprout. If they don't sprout, take them up on the offer!!!! I've always had dud bulbs replaced by those companies like 3 to 1! I've bought dead dried bulbs from the pet store knowing that I can return them to the company and get about 3 times more!

Good Luck! :D
