Aponogeton madagascariensis also known as
Lace Madagascar plant.
The Aponogetonaceae is a family of flowering plants in the order Alismatales. The Aponogetonaceae is considered to be allied to the Potamogetonaceae - Najadaceae complex of families. In recent decades the family has had universal recognition by taxonomists.
All Aponogeton species are easy to grow when their preferences are met. The Madagascar lace plants (
) require special handling as they prefer cooler water – 70 °F (21 °C).
- Sold as a bulb plant, already sprouted with nice leaf. A very rare find since they are usually sold as a dried bulb without any leaf.
