Aponogeton ulvaceus


Unusual aquatic plant with vellum-like, heavily crimped leaves. This is a much loved variety in the aquarium world. Older plants can have up to 50 leaves – an impressive sight. The ideal water temperature of 24-28 °C is higher than for similar plants. Again, it is advisable to give these plants a rest period. Remove the tuber and place it in a pot filled with sand. Spray infrequently for around two months before replacing in the aquarium.
