About This Product

Yet another plant from Madagascar, Aponogeton biovinianus Has wide heavily puckered leaves that look like a piece of kelly green seersucker. Aponogeton boivinianus is an aquatic bulb plant native to the island nation of Madagascar along with many of the other Aponogetons used in the Aquarium plant trade. Aponogeton boivinianus is an excellent aquarium plant as the central focal point in a planted aquarium displaying long dark green leaves that have a hammered texture. Aponogeton boivinianus are bulb plants and will sometimes go dormant to the bulb stage of the plant. Just be patient and new leaves will begin to sprout. Sometimes it is helpful to take the bulb out of the aquarium for a resting period and keep it stored in moist sand until leaves begin to sprout. Then plant the Aponogeton bulb back into the aquarium.

    growth of Aponogeton boivninanus

    Posted by DorothyᅠMartin on Jul 25th 2009

    Great plant. Grows fast. Ours was almost 3 feet tall. - way to big for our 24" tank. So I trimmed down the size of the bulb. Now the plant still looks great but the leaves are smaller and it fits our tank.
