White Fuzz on Bulb of Plant
I am trying my first live plant in my tank. I bought a package of bulbs from Walmart labeled Hardy Aponogeton Bulbs. I dropped one in to begin and it has 5 or 6 good green stems coming from it.
However, recently it has also developed a white fuzz on the bulb. I assume this is mold of some sort. Is it bad for the tank? Should I take it out or leave it in as long as the plant keeps growing.

Is the bulb soft? If so, it could be rotting. I don't know much about bulbs but have read if growing fungus they should be removed because they are rotting. I don't know if removing it and hitting it with some peroxide will help or not. I think I would remove it myself. Some fungus is toxic to fish. But as already stated, I know little about aquarium bulbs.
