    Default White Fuzz on Bulb of Plant

    0 Not allowed!
    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.

    As long as you are getting growth I would just leave it be. It is not likely the substance will hurt anything.

    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.

    I figure if it is growing then the bulb is being used by the young plant. I would bury the bulb now an hope the plant keeps growing.
