I am assuming you planted bulbs in the sand and they had no leaves at the time; if so, you may not see growth for a while. I've always planted aponogetons with leaves so I can't say how long it might be for leaves to emerge from a bulb. Aponogeton do go through a rest period of a couple months when the leaves will die off and the bulb "rests," much like deciduous shrubs.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
