Aponogeton Crispum

Aponogeton Crispum

Aponogeton crispum is really a delightful plant to use as a key piece from which to plan the balance of the 'underwater landscape'. The leaves are pale green in color and so delicate that they're nearly translucent. The margins are crinkled, not unlike some species of seaweed. The slim stems will extend their length to suit the water depth, an perfect depth being about 12-15 in. This plant does, nevertheless, require a strong light.

It is a species discovered naturally in Ceylon, and could be propagated by division of the root stock.
