Description

A beautiful bulb that develops with lovely brown/red leaves. These will reach to the surface of your aquarium making them particularly useful for tall aquariums.

The leaves can become quite large and offer excellent protection from the light for fish such as discus.

This plant is unlikely to cause much difficulty in the aquarium as it grows is a wide range of water conditions. It can survive in warm water (up to 30 degrees) and is ideal for a discus tank.

Received very small bulb. Went mouldy after a few weeks. Binned it.

Been in my tank a month and it hasn't flowered

I cannot really comment and therefore give a mid point mark. There was no growth after a few days - perhaps not yet. Then one day I saw my shrimps were actually grazing on the bulbs!! Avoid it if you have bulb as it will become very expensive slack.

Nice healthy bulb-growing very well

I've had this bulb for a week or so now. 2 strong roots of about an inch long have appeared in this time! Can't wait to see the leaves. I had to remove the little bulb from my tank as my corydoras having been doing rather a lot of excavating around it! It's now in a tub of water in a terracotta pot with tropica substrate & sand, on my windowsill. Will return to tank once rooted in soil & leaves emerging...

Got this for my betta sorority tank, looked good on the photos. When it arrived it was just as ordered, after a couple of days it sprouted a tiny leaf and hasn’t stopped growing since. It’s a fast grower and already puts on an amazing display, the small leaf is now 3 inches with red and green stripes and it has thirty or so smaller red leaves in about 6 weeks. The bettas love to spend time resting on the leaves, and I think had I known how good it was I would have brought 3or4 of them and nothing else in the tank.

Hi,what is the best way to plant this bulb please.

Simply drop into place. That's all we do!

How long does it take before growth happens? I’ve had them in a few weeks and still nothing growing. A white fungus on some of them though, is that normal?

 
Staff

can take weeks but fungus doesn’t sound good

take it out and smell it. A bulb which is alive doesn’t smell and is firm
