Aponogeton boivinianus 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 boivinianus is an excellent aquarium plant as the central focal point in a planted aquarium displaying long dark green leaves that have a hammered texture. Aponogeton boivinianus are bulb plants and 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.

An amazingly fast growing plant

This bulb grew 6 leaves 2 inches long in the first week. Planted it with a root tab and dosing with leaf zone.
