Originating from Madagascar the Aponogeton boivinianus can produce some very large transparent leaves that are vibrant green in colour while the younger leaves are light green and sometimes brown until matured.

This plant grows VERY QUICKLY in the aquarium too under basic conditions. We provide it will very little light and it grows SUPER QUICK with little water movement. We've tried it under faster water movement and it loves that too! Great for covering up equipment, you will be amazed at how fast this plant grows. The leaves can get really long and I've seen them over 100cm before.

In terms of positioning, obviously the background is the only suitable location. Simply drop it into the chosen location and leave it be. It will throw roots down and anchor itself. Note: All bulbs are sent without leaves (so bulb only).

Bought a couple, one sprouted overnight & is doing well, unfortunately just the one. The other hasn’t & as it’s been a while so I assume it’s dead.

I have a little tank with a couple of shrimp. I haven't got much light and things (aside from moss) often struggle to live, let alone grow! Imagine my surprise that this bulb is actually doing something!!! Tough thing, can hardly believe it!

Ask a question about this product
How do you plant this in substrate?

Place it half in half out. Any deeper and it will rot

Are clown loaches likely to leave these plants alone? Thanks


I honestly don't know

Hi, what do you mean with CO2 not required? sorry, I am beginner. Thanks


It means pressurised CO2 not required so suitable for beginners and up :)

Hi Richard, do these bulbs need a dormant period? Thanks


They do best with one 

Does the plant produce more bulbs as it grows?



OK, so where do the bulbs come from?



Hi wld this bulb survive in a discus aquarium the temperature is 30 degrees so was wondering if to warm, thanks duncan.



Hi, my bulb has started to turn white around the bulb but the plant is still growing. Is this normal or shall I remove?


Often happens but nothing to worry about. If you have shrimp they usually eat that part which is breaking down. It's like the skin of an onion
