Did you get the bulbs from wal-mart or some pet store?
I tryed six bulbs with no luck. They just rotted in the tank. If you get them to grow they do look great from what I've seen. Good luck!

I could not resist these bulbs at Walmart when I saw them. So, I bought two packs of the Nympaea bulbs and one pack of the Aponogeton. So far, I have one successful Nymphaea growing and two Aponogeton. The other bulbs were duds. The plants that are growing are doing quite well.

I bought some about 3 weeks ago at wlamart and they came in pack of 5 bulbs.
Only three grew but my white skirt tetra would eat them all the way down to the bulb.
I got rid of those pesky fish and I gave them away and got some guppies.
Now there grow fairly quickly. One of them even rooted itself and I have a feeling it is going to outgrow my ten gallon tank.

sounds good that almost all of yours are growing. I sent the 2 bad ones back to the company so they can send me replacements.
I didn't send the receipt from Walmart though I did send the little bar code thing and the part where it say guaranteed to grow.

Update: (5/4/10) I got my replacement bulbs today by the mail. Like I said I only sent 2 and they send me a whole bunch about 13 or so. The bulbs looked fresher than the ones I got at walmart. I just tossed all the bulbs into my tank and see if they are all good hopefully.
