A great easy lotus plant. Do not bury the bulb, only the roots. This plant is a hog though it will absorb a lot of nutrients so be careful and make sure you are dosing fertilizer so the other plants will have that available to them. It will send up new leaves that will get taller and taller each time a new one pops up, until eventually reaching the surface. Once it reaches the surface there is a possibility it will sprout a flower. If you don't want the lilies to float on the surface trim the tallest leaves off to encourage more compact growth.
