From what I understand, it is kind of a hard plant to get started, but an extreamly harty one once you get it established. It is also a plant that you fish can enjoy munching on. Pick nice ones without white spots. The bulbs need some light to start off, so I put them in a cup (I love using my old Marimo Ball cup for stuff like this) with old water and some gravel from my tank and put it in a sunny window (east or west). When they drop to the bottom, you can put them in the tank. When they sprout, put it down sprout side up. Once I had a couple sinkers, I put the remander in the tank to float in the cup. Making the gravel unbalanced helps it hug the corner of the tank instead of bobbing everywhere. I take a bit of gravel water from the feeding area and put it in the cup every day. Take them out and smell them and if they smell nasty, their bad. The cup will keep the water from getting nasty if you happen to get a bad one. Posted via Mobile Device
