Description

Aponogeton ulvaceus is one of the most beautiful bulb species in the Aponogeton-family and originates from Madagascar.

The leaves are delicate light-green and transparent with fluted margin. A single root can produce more than 40 leaves, 30-60 cm long. This means that the plant is best as a solitary plant in large aquariums (the plant becomes up to 50 cm wide). It is relatively tolerant, and thrives in both soft and hard water, particularly if CO2 is added.

There are many varieties of Aponogeton ulvaceus, some of which need a dormant period, when the root does not produce leaves.
