Is my dwarf aquarium lily rotting?

Recommended Posts


I got my bulb around 2 weeks ago and I’ve only seen these white sprouts grow on it about a week ago. However, there are some lighter parts on my bulb that make me a little concerned. It also smells bad, and will occasionally emit bubbles from the lighter areas. I’m not sure if it’s starting to rot or not. spacer.pngspacer.png

Do you think the white sprouts are the beginnings of leaves?  If so, you may want to still leave it.  I have a post about this exact same thing with my lily bulb and it ended up finally working out.  I really think half of my bulb is/was rotten, but it's growing like a weed now and it hasn't messed up my water parameters or anything so I'm just letting it be.  Someone else suggested keeping it in a bowl of tank water to see if it finally starts sprouting leaves or not, so you don't have to worry about skunking up your tank.
