Aponogeton Ulvaceus | Bulb
Aponogeton Ulvaceus originates from Sri Lanka and it is also commonly known as Compact Aponogeton. This plant produces unique wavy-edged or ruffled leaves that appear smooth and shiny. The appearance of the leaves will make the plant stand out in your aquarium. The leaves of the plant may vary in color from light bronze to olive-green to pale-yellow.
Care & Maintenance for Aponogeton Ulvaceus
In nature, Aponogetons are found in shallow areas that may become dry during some periods of the year. As a result, Aponogetons’ growth during the dry season is noticeably slower. In the aquarium, Aponogetons may grow very well for a number of months and then show very little, if any, growth. These cyclical growth patterns are normal and expected.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
- Temperature Range: 70-82°F
- Tank Placement: Midground - Background
Aponogeton Ulvaceus will benefit greatly when planted in a nutrient-rich substrate. While the plant does not require strong light, Ulvaceus will grow faster and taller if grown under strong light. Good fertilization with either root tabs or liquid fertilizers is also recommended. Given time, the plant will produce many leaves and become a showpiece in the aquarium.
Aponogeton Ulvaceus is also available as a fully grown bare-root plant. We also offer other varieties of Aponogetons, including Aponogeton Longiplumulosus and Aponogeton Madagascar.
