It's... alive!

I bought some of those dwarf lilly bulbs from walmart back in november. It is just now starting to develop leaves. Take a look.

I can't believe it took three months to get started. Just an FIY I guess if you buy these to give it a while to start. Although the second one has not produced leaves yet.

I had some success w/ those wal-mart bulbs. For the most part they just rotted to nothing but the few that sprouted did OK. I have some sort of bulb plant that has like 8 slender leaves floating on the surface...random walmart bulb but doing very well.

LOL, I HAD some, but ended up growing to big. I ended up throwing them in the trash.



I still do have some in a low light tank.

WOW, I hope mine don't get that big. A nice looking plant though. If it does I plan on having some aquatic container gardens outside this year and that may work well in those.

Nymphae can get large. Have you ever tried Nuphar spp. ?

This Nuphar japonicum var Formasa outgrew my 125G:



It was so pretty until it started to shade everything below it.
