Aponogeton Ulvaceus originates from Sri Lanka and it is also commonly known as Compact Aponogeton. This plant produces unique wavy-edged leaves that appear smooth and shiny. The plant often grows in spurts, producing quickly numerous leaves and then slowing down its growth. A. Ulvaceus does not require bright or strong lighting but under intense light it will grow faster and taller.

    I love this plant so far. I bought it for a 60 gallon tall aquarium, so it is 25 inches tall. I was looking for a plant to fill in the back corner that would be tall enough to reach the top. Originally I was a little dissapointed when it came as it was just the bulb, no real leaves or stems yet. However I planted it exactly 1 week ago in pool filter sand with root tabs, and it has already grown 4 leaves 8+ inches long. They are beautiful, and I am so excited to see this plant fill out. I did set up Co2 a few days ago, however I got that much growth with just the root tabs. I would warn anyone away that doesn't have a TALL aquarium or isn't looking for a canopy effect, I would say this plant grows too fast to just keep trimmed to a smaller size. I honestly wish I would have bought a second one for the other corner instead of an amazon sword.

    The bulb sprouted very quickly and is already showing substantial growth. I'm very happy with the purchase.

    This plant is growing faster than I could ever imagine! It's absolutely huge! Got for a 29 gallon and it's very clear this plant is for bigger tanks lol. The leaves creates a canopy bc how long they are. My fish absolutely love laying on the leaves like a hammock. Easy to trim and grows back quickly with no CO2 or additional fertilizer. Only using fluval stratum and aquarium co-op root tabs. Very happy with this plant. Delivered healthy and extremely fast even with 20 degree weather and covid issues with shipping companies. Impressive.

    Horrible packing. Amazing plant!

    When I received my plants they came in a stapled baggy wrapped in one sheet of tissue paper. So naturally a lot of stems broke. I was disappointed in that but the Aponogeton grows so rapidly it doesn’t matter! They are already getting shoots and are 12 inches tall after 1 week! Also definitely treat them if you don’t want snails because there were at least 20 snails in the plants that I noticed. All in all I am obsessed with this plant and you will not be disappointed!

    More than expected

    Ordered a large, so very happy I did. It's big and beautiful. Didn't think it would be as popular as it is in my tank. Especially with my shrimp babies. Thriving, well packaged, arrived on time. Hands down my favorite new Addition.
