Find the two solutions of the initial value problem

dy/dx = 3y^(2/3) ; y(0) = 0

The attempt at a solution

*********************

I integrate to find the general solution

y = (x + C)^3

c=0 is obviously a solution, but I can't find the other one. The clue here is to find a value for c that fits into the equation 0 = c^3, right?
