This fascinating variant of the Madagascar laceplant is also known as Aponogeton madagascariensis var. henkelianus. It lives up to its name "laceplant" or "laceleaf": the broad leaves have a delicate grid structure, the leaf tissue is reduced to the thin nerves. The larger perforations are divided by smaller, irregularly arranged connecting nerves. As a solitary plant or small, loose group in the midground or background, Aponogeton madagascariensis "henkelianus" draws all eyes.
The forms of Aponogeton madagascariensis originate from cool, fast flowing, permanent rivers in Madagaskar. They prefer cooler water below 25 °C, good water movement, CO2 supply and nutrient-rich bottom. Medium lighting is sufficient.
Aponogeton madagascariensis is normally delivered as a bulb without leaves that will sprout in the aquarium. Please note that the bulb that you will receive may be still leafless.
Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.
