by Ariana13xy They back their guarantee! Great product!
Purchased two packs of these bulbs in the past year, and about half of them did not sprout as guaranteed after giving them several months to grow. Dug the bulbs up, stuck them in an envelope, and sent them back per the warranty instructions on the back of the package.
Two months later, I received my SASE back with about a dozen very healthy looking bulbs in it, along with instructions that could help anyone buying these in-store:
"Thank you for your purchase of plant bulbs. We're sorry that your bulbs did not sprout; please follow these instructions on your replacement bulbs to help insure growth.
Try placing your bulbs in a moist paper towel (not wet), please the paper towel in a plastic bag and place in a warm area (like a window ceil in warm climates) within a couple of days you should get a sprout poking out of the bulb. Plant the bulb into your aquarium or pond substrate leaving about 1/2 of it sticking out and enjoy watching it grow!"
I was initially doubtful sending away for replacement bulbs to some random address in California; however, this company fulfilled their guarantee and then some, which puts them in high esteem for me. I will continue to purchase these bulbs, knowing they stand behind their product.
I look forward to my dozen new aquarium plants providing years of cover, food, and variety to my fish. Thank you, Top Fin, for keeping your promise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FishkeeperNeo Make Sure Your's Was Recently Put On Shelf
Title says it all, sometimes the plant bulbs don't sprout, because they are expired. After you made sure they were recently put on stock, put them in your aquarium, make sure that the bulbs sink. If they float, there is a good chance that the bulb is dead. After that, just wait a few days, and you should see a little 'sapling" that looks like a thick needle.

by fishfrenzy2 New to plants. Amazed!!!
I am new to aquarium plants but have had my 29g up and running for about 3 years now and I was amazed with these plants! The pictures I attached were taken at 30 days from introduction to the tank (the time when they are guaranteed to have some growth). Well my bulbs have done great! I got 6 bulbs (package says there are 4) and all 6 are growing and doing well without any type of fertilizer, additive, or CO2. I would highly recommend. TIP: CHECK TO SEE HOW LONG THE PACK HAS BEEN IN THE STORE. SHORT SHELF LIFE IS BETTER THAN LONG SHELF LIFE.
