Common Name: Aponogeton Capuronii
Aponogeton Capuronii is a large bulb plant that grows long and curly leaves. It is extremely decorative and grows very tall making this aquarium plant suited for larger aquariums. Aponogeton Capuronii bears similar characteristics to Aponogeton Ulvaceus except the leaves are more narrow and curly and is still relatively rare in the hobby. The growth pattern almost looks like the fried spiral potato sticks sold at county fairs. This plant grows tall and makes a striking focal point in any large aquarium.
Half of the bulb should be buried into the substrate to facilitate growth. Avoid completely burying the bulb as this can promote bulb rot.
- Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
- This species of aquarium plant grows quite large and is recommended for larger sized planted aquarium tanks.
- CO2 injection and quality aquarium soil will yield better growth.
- Please research appropriately to ensure your plant thrives.
