Dwarf red lilly growth

I have a red lilly plant in my 10 gallon, 30 watt, heavily planted aquarium. the lilly seems to grow very slow and the leaves are very tiny! I see pics of the plant ande the pics show it to be with large leaves and some that go to the surface. The bulb is buried half way in the sand and has been for several months. Anything im doing wrong? all the other plants are doing great. i fert with seachem flourish every week.

I think they just take lots of time.

I've got the sameplant and put it in the tank the day before Thanksgiving. I'm just now seeing some decent growth on the leaves. They're about 1/2" now but they stayed tiny for a really long time.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

reach in and feel it, if its mushy its a dud and is rotting. If not just give it time.

Mine are weeds. I have gotten 3-4 plants from one bulb in my 55 gallon. I beleive I pulled at least 6 leaves off them. A few were about 10" across their "lilly" pad.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk
