Aponogeton longiplumulosus


This tuberous plant from northwest Madagascar comes highly recommended for aquariums. It is easy to cultivate; it just needs to be given enough space. The scalloped leaves are highly decorative and are best presented in a subtle scheme – for example combined with Mayaca bog moss. A. longiplumulosus can live for many years in an aquarium environment. During rest periods it stops growing, but after a few months it does start to produce new leaves. There is no need to remove the bulb from the aquarium at any point.
