I did use a store bought clove that has sprouted. I started them in February and used a basic 10-10-10 fertilizer (don’t recall the brand name). It makes sense that the bulbs would be tiny now that you mention the growth inhibitor bit.Grocery store cloves are usually treated with a growth inhibitor to prolong shelf life. That results in small bulbs.
Try again in October with some seed cloves from a nursery
