Just picked up a submerged Nymphaea lotus bulb from the LFS, but I'm nervous about putting it in my tank since it has some brown "fuzz" on parts of the bulb. The fuzz looks a tiny bit like BBA, but I know next to nothing about Nymphaea lotuses. Is it normal for there to be a bit of hair/fuzz on the bulb? Or do I have a BBA-afflicted bulb that I should ditch?

Here it is:





The fuzzy tufts kind of look like part of the bulb itself, but I want to be certain of that before I dump it in my lovely algae-free tank (had a bad experience with BBA years ago and do not want a repeat). I don't think the bulb is old/rotting since it appears to be actively sending up new shoots.
