, , ,

Aponogeton ulvaceus is a stout plant which demands large tanks with a good amount of water surface. The leaves are translucent, bright green with a narrowed leaf base,and are typically 20-50 cm long (occasionally up to 100 cm at optimum growth conditions), 3-10 cm broad and wavy on the sides. The primary form of Aponogeton ulvaceus is rather rare, and most available plants are hybrids. As many other Aponogetons this plant requires a period of rest. In winter cut off the roots and leaves and put it into unwashed sand in flowerpots in cold water for two months in a dark place. Or less circumstantial, place the tuber in a flowerpot on the windowsill together with an ordinary plant, which never dries out. After this period of rest, put it back into the tank.
