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. When placing in your aquarium, simply place it on the top of your substrate - do not push into the substrate or they will rot.

Bulb looked ok on receipt of delivery placed on its side on top of substrate but after two weeks it has no signs of growing. The only thing that is growing is a mold that's covering it. Asked for advice but still waiting


Please be patient with bulbs - they're seasonal (like garden bulbs) and don't just grow because they're placed in water. We can't say exactly when they will sprout for those reasons.

I purchased two of these, one of them took a little longer to sprout and I thought it might be dead - but it was just a slow to get going, now both seem healthy and are growing fast!

Added to the tank 2 weeks ago, leaves are now starting to grow properly, nice and easy to add to the tank

Can't really say much yet, bulb came well packaged. Been in tank a couple of weeks now but only a few small sprouts showing so far.

by Nick H.
Started growing a few hours after I added it to my tank. Nearly a month later and the leaves are at about 2 inches. Great fun watching it grow as there's noticeable difference each day. Only reason it's not 5 stars is because It's made the one side of my tank look quite bare as you'll need to make room for its eventual size. Perhaps it's unfair to not give a full 5 stars. But y'know picky planted tank keepers *eye roll* ????

Took 2 weeks to sprout but looks great once it did

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?


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

What is the coldest these will grow in... I have no heater so my water is around 20


20 is fine
