Aponogeton capuronii aquarium plant

Description:

Florida Aquatic Nurseries grows Aponogeton capuronii.  Aponogeton capuronii is an aquatic bulb plant native to the island nation of Madagascar along with many of the other Aponogetons used in the Aquarium plant trade.  Aponogeton capuroniis is an excellent aquarium plant as the central focal point in a planted aquarium displaying green leaves that have undulating margins.  Aponogeton capuronii is similar in appearance to Aponogeton ulvaceous, but smaller.  Aponogeton capuronii. like other bulb plants, will sometimes go dormant to the bulb stage of the plant.  Just be patient and new leaves will begin to sprout.  Sometimes it is helpful to take the bulb out of the aquarium for a resting period and keep it stored in moist sand until leaves begin to sprout.  Then plant the Aponogeton bulb back into the aquarium.
