Well I checked my bulb(the one with no leaves) when I cleaned my tank and it had started to rot. But Im not comletely sure what plant it is so could someone ID it for me?
This is the only pic I have of it....around the time I bought it actually..and I would like another one so thanks in advance for the ID.

It's a red lotus - thai variety by the looks of the shape leaf...

Put the bulb in the substrate leaving the top half of the bulb out... the roots should then grow under the substrate.. if there is not enough light the leaves shoot right up to the surface.

Its not from walmart..Ive had those before and they do grow well with enough light and are fairly easy to keep.

I did eventually find out that the bulb should be halfway planted so it was for the last few years I had it but it has recently rotted so I will have to get another one but thanks for clearing that up for me.
