Originating from Madagascar the Aponogeton henkelianus Bulb is a beautiful center piece for your tank. This bulb has bright green leaves that are much slimmer than other Aponogeton's.

This plant grows QUICKLY in the aquarium too under basic conditions. We provide it will very little light and it grows even with little water movement. We've tried it under faster water movement and it loves that too which means this plant is suitable for beginners and up. 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).

Absolutely love this bulb. Put it in 3 weeks ago and tripled in size already. Don't need to disturb fish or weigh down in the gravel. Had a space in the middle and the bulb fitted in perfectly. Would definitely buy again.

So I’m very new to plants in my fish tank, but will never go back. All the rest of my plants came from aqua essentials and were bushy and have grown amazingly. I was a bit worried about the bulb I received, but after about a week there’s new sprouts coming up and it’s growing really well. I look forward to seeing its progress every day. Thanks Aqua Essentials.

Aponogeton just may be my favourite tank plant. This is my second bulb and variety and is growing at a great rate! The first is still going strong and my beta boy couldn't be happier hiding and resting in these beautiful floaty leaves.

When the bulb arrived , looking like a dry prune , I thought hum? But put it in anyway ! Next day a few tips showing ! Week later 4 leaves at 6inch , Well pleased , wouldn't hesitate to recommend it .


Glad you persevered with it. They don’t look much but pack a punch.

Ask a question about this product
do these bulbs readilly sink and stay put , or are they tricky to keep in place!


Sometimes they sink. 

Do you have to bury the bulbs in the substrate?


Pls see description

Would this grow in a bottomless tank (no substrate at all) ?
