What to do with lily bulb?

Davidh9054

Ok so about a month or so ago I got some drawn lily bulbs I planted 2 in my 20 gallon. They are doing great and growing super fast but what should I do with the bulb part that it originally started as? Should I just leave it alone can I plant it deeper? I was thinking for moving one of them to a 10 gallon tank I set up, how well will the plant handle the move? I’m not sure how well you can see it but in the picture circled is the bulb part I’m talking about. On that plant you can see it a lot on the other on not so much.

Bulbs should be kept mostly above the substrate - bury them too much and they could start to rot or die off before the plant is ready.

If you are moving the plant, depending on how mature the plant is, you may find that the bulb falls off anyway from handling it.

I didn’t move mine, but after a few years the bulb came off it (the clown loaches might have helped it along!) and had no problems.

I’m going to move the one that the bulb can’t be seen anymore. The one that I can still see the bulb I’ll just leave it alone, although that is the one that is growing the biggest and fastest.
