Re: red lotus bulbs

Good, I'm not the only one.  I bought four lotus bulbs recently.  They are
slowly putting out lanceolate leaves.  I have the bulb bums barely submerged
in substrate.
I've seen magnificent specimens of these in display tanks at the lfs.  But
historically I have had zero success.

Now, I have lots and lots of light, soft water, neutral pH, the whole nine

How long do these plants take to grow?  (without CO2 injection.  Other
plants growing well)

Next query:
According to Rataj, "banana" plants grow in aquaria and the leaves can reach
the surface.  But Baensch says they don't last long.  Which is it?  I bought
one as a trial plant.
