sounds like a hit or miss thing then. I wasnt sure how long the bubls sat on the shelf ect. I guess if nothing else I will have to keep on trying.

Will any of the red lillies grow from cut stems?

The short answer....no. They are a bulb plant and have to sprout from the bulb. Cut stems will not produce roots, only the bulb will.

They will reproduce via runners and form new bulbs. If you have fish that like to nibble your plants you may need to sprout them in a breeder tank (or somehow otherwise separated from the general population) so your fish don't eat the sprouting plant. Trim the surface leaves on the lilly to encourage lower growth.

I went to Walmart tonight, and to my dismay, they did not have the bulbs anymore.

Well, its been a while and still no luck on the bulbs sprouting. I think I may take them out and put them into a shorter tank with more light. Think this will work?

You may just have some duds. Generally those bulbs have some sort of guarentee on them, so if they don't sprout you can get them replaced. Check the packaging if you still have it, and it should have instruction for what to do.
