Crinkled Aponogeton (Aponogeton crispus)
Growing to heights of up to 50 cm, the crinkled Aponogeton and other Aponogeton species are ideal for background decoration. As such, the long, thin leaves with crinkled edges can be seen in many aquariums. Please note, however, that these plants need good light and plenty of nutrients to flourish. Furthermore, the water bodies in their home country of India regularly dry out. The plants therefore need dormant periods, during which they retract into their tubers and can be stored at room temperature in damp sand for one or two months.
