Arrived alive and beautiful but no bulb attached

I give this plant and everything about flipaquatics 5 stars, the only thing is my red tiger lotus was not connected to the bulb so I couldn't plant it. I have it floating in the tank and hope it can grow that way. But I ordered a bunch of shrimp too and they were all alive and well! Great shipping

Very healthy plant! My red tiger lotus came with the bulb and with plenty of roots so I separated them and now have two very healthy plants!
