Aquarium / Pond Plant Bulbs
Our Aquarium plant bulbs arrive ready to be planted in customers’ aquariums. With ample light and clean water, they will grow into dense, verdant, flowering flora. Betting best results from bulbs can require more than simply moving sprouted plants to an aquarium, but the detailed product instructions we provide — plus resources from our website — reduce the learning curve and make the bulb maturation process a pleasure to assist.
Best Practices for Bulb Propagation
Place bulbs in a damp paper towel, then place the paper towel in a plastic bag, in a warm area (e.g., a windowsill). Within a couple of days, you should see a sprout poking from the bulb. Plant the bulb into your aquarium or pond substrate, leaving about half of it sticking out. Then enjoy watching it grow!
Benefits of Bulbs
In bulb form, some aquatic plants last longer outside of aquariums than others. These bulbs let aquascapers secure the bulbs they need, and then take time to make final plans before begin working on a nano tank, a high-gallon installation, or something in-between.
Bulbs are also beneficial for those who love the botanical side of aquascaping, and enjoy raising aquatic plants. In addition, our bulbs benefit retailers by simplifying the care and storage of aquatic flora. Unlike delicate species of sprouted plants, most bulbs are relatively low-maintenance and can survive in their dormant stage for months — and sometimes years.
Something for All
Our aquarium plant bulbs are ideal for beginning and experienced aquascapers alike. Those new to the science often prefer assorted package bulbs so they can sample variety, while experienced aquarium owners looking for a specific bulb can acquire it individually or in a multi-pack. Single-variety multipacks are perfect for planting multiples of well-loved plants.
