They sound like the same thing as the "hybrid lily" bulbs from
Wal-Mart.  If so, they are hybrid Aponogeton seedlings, probably Apon.
ulvaceus x crispus.  Eventually, they will send up floating leaves and
flower stalks; mine were self-fertile and set viable seeds.  I pulled
up the original plants and gave them to a LFS when they outgrew my 20
gallon tank, but I still have a few of their seedlings.

Best regards,
