Aponogeton boivinianus is a bulb plant from Madagascar. It is a large strong plant well suited for large aquariums. In favorable conditions it can form very large leaves, up to 24 inches long and 4 inches wide leaves. The oldest leaves are deep dark-green, while younger leaves are light-green and sometimes brownish until they are fully developed. In the wild Aponogeton boivinianus is found in fast-flowing water, and it prefers some flow in the aquarium water. The bulb will go through a dormant period for the bulb to regenerate and produce new leaves.
This species will propagate by flowering and producing seeds. All plants are sensitive to copper; Aponogeton boivinianus is no exception. Be aware about the type of medication you are introducing to the aquarium, especially chemicals to control snails infestation, those are usually copper based and should not be added to a planted aquarium.
