DescriptionAponogeton longiplumulosus from Madagascar has large, fluted leaves (35-60 cm long), making it a wonderful plant which can be recommended for large aquariums (the whole plant becomes 25-40 cm wide). It is relatively undemanding, and makes no special demands on water quality. It also flowers frequently, making it a beautiful addition to any large open aquarium. It stops growing at regular intervals, but normally starts again after a few weeks of dormancy.
Please note: This plant arrives as a bulb, very often with leaves already sprouting. It can grow much bigger very quickly! It's best planted as follows...
How to plant: Push the bulb gently into the substrate in your aquarium, with the bottom two thirds of the bulb in the substrate, and the top third sticking out. Your bulb will soon establish. We endeavour to send out our bulbs with new leaf growth, however this occasionally isnt possible.
