Aponogeton boivinianus


A tuberous plant from the aquatic monocot family. This is one of the most attractive types of Aponogeton for aquariums. Its vibrant green, transparent leaves are arresting. In addition, the leaf blades have an extraordinary texture. As soon as the plant’s growth begins to slow, it should be given a period of rest, during which it needs cool water and dimmed light. The best way to achieve this is to move it into a small, separate aquarium for around 3 to 4 months. It is then ready to be replanted into your tank.
