comment What's the Minimum Space I Can Leave Between Flower Bulbs That I Want to Plant in a Planter Box?
I forgot to say, dusting the bulbs with sulphur powder after cutting the mould out should help. The trouble is, you've already planted some and the fungal spores may now be present in the planting medium.

Yes, it might - you haven't said what the bulbs are, but if you want to still try to grow them, cut out the mouldy parts and then plant. This may or may not stop the fungal infection, and it may spread to other bulbs.

comment Identification of a plant: indoor palm of some kind?
Yes and no - if you look at the back of the leaf you show above, you can see a joining of the veins near the edge of the leaf running up the whole leaf - that's usually clearly visible on the upperside of the leaf in a Plumeria, looks like a complete line running from top to bottom of the leaf, but I'm not seeing that here. It might be the plant just isn't fully healthy though.

By the look of the veining and overall shape of the single leaf I can see clearly, it looks like one of the Plumerias, maybe P. rubra - be good to see more entire leaves, maybe a pic from further back, showing the whole plant?

comment I live in West Palm Beach Florida we have a strange Apple like tree
Might be Cydonia oblonga, if it has white flushed pink in bud flowers, the fruit is a bit knobbly and turns yellow when ripe (if it stays long enough before something eats it)

comment What is this plant called?
Need more info - was it a tree, a large shrub, a small shrub or a climber? Is it fragrant? How tall is the plant?

comment Can I treat supermarket “living lettuce” as lettuce seedlings?
@Shule: its potash you mean, not phosphorus - potash encourages flowering.
