Common Name: Aponogeton Ulvaceus
Aponogeton Ulvaceus is a very large aquatic bulb plant with leaves that grow in a twisted curly manner. Its bright green leaves are slightly translucent and grow from a long sturdy stem shooting out of the bulb. It is considered an easy aquatic plant to keep and can withstand a wide range of water parameters. Like most Aponogeton species, Aponogeton Ulvaceus grows very large and is suitable for larger planted aquariums!
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.
- Aponogeton grows fairly large making this aquarium plant suitable for larger planted aquariums.
