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).

Bulb arrived with one leaf which I wasn’t expecting, expected no leaves. Planted in and already after a couple of weeks there are 2 new leaves. Testament to great quality as ordered these from different suppliers before and not had any growth. They are a bit of a challenge anyway though! So I’m impressed so far.

I bought this as bulb only, no leaves. Within a week, a leaf shot out and had grown 5 ". Very Happy with my purchase

Fantastic bulb. Started growing within2 days of ‘planting’ survived being moved when my tank leaked. Very strong growth and seriously weird looking leaves.

This came as a tuber. Placed in the tank and within a couple of day is showing signs growth. I already have some of these I bought previously and they have flourished. One is even showing signs of flowering.

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) ?
