Aponogeton longiplumulosus

Post by The PlantGuy on Tue Oct 21, 2014 7:51 am

This is probably my favorite Apongeton.  I brought in 3 of these with my last Florida order as they are fairly rare and not readily available.  As i was getting ready to ship one out yesterday I noticed a really nice flower floating on the top.  I'm not sure why these plants aren't very popular.  Other than the madagascar lace, there isn't really much interest for some reason.

That is a really nice looking plant and the flower is gorgeous. You would think it would be more popular.

The thing with aponogetons in general is that they are one of the strongest root feeders I have ever found. Where tiger lotus, crypts and amazon swords still thrive in nutrient based substrates, the aponogeton doesn't anymore. At least that is my experience with them.

I have recently changed out the substrate in a tank where I keep them and I am giving mine their last chance to show their worth...

so you're saying a nutrient rich substrate isn't enough for them?...I'm a little confused by your comment. I haven't kept them for any long periods of time in my tanks other than crispus and undulatus but they seem to be ok..

i think my was crispus. They were rooted in a sand substrate with a couple of pirahnas in a low light tank. they took over the tank. I don't think substrate is as important to them as maybe water column nutrients? the root system was massive though. I was able to see the bottoms of my tanks,....
