Description

The Madagascar Laceplant is a fascinating water plant with grid-like leaves. It occurs in cool, permanent rivers in Madagascar. There are several forms from different localities that were partly described as varieties. The typical variety, Aponogeton madagascariensis var. madagascariensis, has rather narrow leaves with regular lattice structure and narrow perforations. Sometimes it is delivered under the incorrect name "Aponogeton henkelianus".

The forms of Aponogeton madagascariensis 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.

Aponogeton madagascariensis is usually found in flowing waters on the island of Madagascar. Its lacy leaf structure is unique and has made keeping this plant a challenge to hobbyists since the 1950s.
There are two varieties of Aponogeton madagascariensis, var. henkelianus and var. major with broad leaves and swallow-tailed white or yellowish flowers, which produce viable seeds after self-pollination with a brush.
The leaves of var. henkelianus have an irregular lace structure, in contrast to var. major, whose leaves are very evenly structured. Another variety readily available in the aquarium trade is var. madagascariensis, growing far larger and with smaller leaves that can grow up to a metre in length, counting the leaf stalk. The five-pointed flowers of var. madagascariensis are pink to purple. This plant cannot be propagated by self-pollination. (read more)
