Comments: This is a premium quality Live Plant, that will grow into a rare plant in your aquarium. Origin: Originally this plant species was discovered in Madagascar, a large island off the East Coast of Africa. But now this plant is cultivated on a famous aquarium plant farm, and at this time it's found growing in a few aquariums scattered around the world. Maximum Size: The maximum size for this plant is more than 20" tall. Compatibility: this plant does well with most kinds of aquarium fish, except those that need salt, those that dig and uproot plants like many Cichlids, and those that routinely eat plants. Temperature: This plant likes temperatures that range from 70 to 80+ degrees F. Probably about 70 to 72 degrees is best. Water Conditions: This plant likes water with a pH of 7.2 to 7.8 with medium hardness. Most water in the U.S. is similar, making this an excellent plant for most aquariums.

So it can be easily moved around. Aquarium Filter: Bio-Wheel Filters are highly recommended for aquariums with fish. But plants usually do better without a Bio-Wheel Filter, because Bio-Wheels quickly remove CO2 from the water, and plants need CO2. The addition of Lava Rocks will keep nitrates in the ideal range for fish, which is not too low for plants. Click here to learn more about using Lava Rocks in aquariums. Life Span: this live plant can live for several years and sometimes for many years with proper care and good water. Popularity: For a long-long time Live Plants like this one have been very popular. Names: The scientific name for this plant is Aponogeton boivinianus. Variations: We've not seen any variations.
