Aponogeton Capuronii is a bulb plant from Madagascar. It is a large strong plant well suited for large aquariums. The leaves are ruffle in shape and are not soft to the feel but more ridgid. When growing in favorable conditions it can form very long and large leaves, up to 24 inches long and 4 inches wide leaves. The oldest leaves are deep dark-green, while younger leaves are rusty brown/green in color and will turn bright green with age.  In the wild Aponogeton Capuronii is found in fast-flowing water, and it prefers some flow in the aquarium water. The bulb will need to go through a dormant period for it to regenerate and produce new leaves. 

This species will propagate by flowering and producing seeds. All plants are sensitive to copper; Aponogeton Capuronii 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.
