Apongeton Boivinianus is a very easy aquarium plant that is very undemanding about lighting and water parameters. It gets a very beautiful red/maroon color in high lighting. These get vary large and have beautifully ripply leaves. These grow from bulbs and are very forgiving if you make them unhappy.
Our Apongetons are all grown out in aquariums and have several leaves and healthy roots! Most vendors sell bare bulbs that haven’t sprouted and take an indefinite amount of time to start growing!
Most will come between 3”-5” in length.
