Aponogeton capuronii comes from fast-flowing rivers in the southeastern part of Madagascar. This species is variable, and mostly a form with strongly frilled, decorative leaves is available in trade. The strap-shaped leaves are somewhat transparent, show olive green tones and get about 30-50 cm long. As well as other Aponogetons from Madagascar, A. capuronii is mostly imported as a bulb without leaves that will sprout in the aquarium.
Capuron's Aponogeton is quite demanding. It prefers cooler temperatures of about 18-24 °C and softer, slightly acid water with pH values around 5-6,5. Also good water current is beneficial.
This Aponogeton species is relatively rare in trade. With its frilled, strap-shaped leaves it looks very decorative as a solitary plant or small group in the background to midground of not too small aquariums.
Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.
