Plant Description:

Aponogeton ulvaceus is part of the Aponogeton genus. They are native to the slow moving streams and ponds of Madagascar. This Aponogeton stays fully submerged in its natural habitat, but goes dormant in the winter.

Aponogeton ulvaceus is a plant that is adored because of its large size and beautiful semi-transparent, wavy, green leaves. This plant can be planted directly into the substrate, and can be easily propagated by splitting the plant at the rhizome or bulb.

In the aquarium, Aponogetons, are relatively easy to care for plants that thrives in a variety of environments; it does best in medium lighting and medium fertilization or CO2 supplementation for best and bright coloration. It should be noted that Aponogetons are notoriously heavy root feeders, and root tabs may be used if nutrient deficiencies are detected. Aponogeton ulvaceus is ideal for large slow moving aquariums where they will create a big impact!

This plant has moderate growth and may go dormant periodically. Dormancy can be simulated resting the plant in cool water for a couple months.
