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).

Started growing as soon as I planted it. Has been in a three weeks now and leaves are 10/ 15 cm or so - so very fast growing. Really pleased and looking forward to seeing if the leaves will get to the top of the tank. Will buy more!

The bulb was in a healthy condition when received although I was a little concerned by how cold it was given it had been sat in the Post Office sorting depot all weekend. I placed the bulb in my tank on Monday evening, it had just 2 shoot tips peeking through. Come Thursday evening there were 6 shoots clearly visible, the largest being approximately 6cms long, so it is growing at a rate of 2cms per day. So far very impressed, will see how it continues to develop over the next month before deciding on whether or not to get any more.

How do you plant this in substrate?

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