Ok so a couple years back, Walmart was selling bulbs to grow in your tank. Thinking it was a cool idea, I decided to pay the $2 and give one a try.

Well...

2 months later, the plant was absolutely gorgeous and huge. It turned into a red-coloured, broad leafed plant that was a fast grower and survived in my minimally lit tank.

Recently, I decided that it is high time I redecorated and give my main community tank a 'facelift', so to speak. I headed to Walmart only to find out that they no longer sell the bulbs :(

So... Does anyone know where I can find similar bulbs for sale at such a reasonable price? I am hesitant to spend $8 per plant at my LFS because I definitely do not have a green thumb, which is why I like to stick with things I know work.

If anyone has any ideas or has seen these for sale, please let me know :D

I went to walmart recently in the USA and they had dwarf lily bulbs and Aponogeton bulbs.

try a pond supply store - they may have some aquatic plants.

I called, the one closest to me doesn't have them. Thanks for the idea though!
