According to the University of Illinois Extension, "a bulb is a promise of a plant to come." A plant bulb is basically a complex system of roots and plant parts that are packed tightly together. In fact, the bulb actually contains a miniature plant, which emerges as it is nourished. The bulb even contains flower stems and leaves, which are packaged in an outer layer called a tunic. Once the bulb has received adequate sun and nutrients, it will emerge from the soil and grow like other plants.
