Madagascar Lace Plant

This species of aponogeton native to Madagascar gets its name from the structure the leaves grow in, displaying a beautiful skeletal latticework design throughout. Madagascar Lace plants are perennial plants and will go through a period where most of their leaves will die back, typically during the summer, then sprouting new larger leaves around the fall.  When planting Madagascar lace take care as to not fully bury the bulb in the substrate, burying about half the bulb will keep this plant happy and thriving.

It was so small when I received it but within a few days it grew a great. Aquarium Co op has the best Madagascar Lace Plant by far!!!

Great plant

Well packaged and the plant is strong and beautiful. I’m so excited to finally have this plant! I popped in the root tans and it’s growing well. Thanks Aquarium Co-op!

half good, half bad

One of them arrived good and healthy and is currently the center piece of my 20g, unfortunately the other bulb arrived pretty brown and sadly its just not sprouting anything.

What a comeback!

When I first received the plant I was skeptical it would grow to resemble the one in the picture as the bulb had an exposed area and the leaves were small and wrinkled. After a few days in my tank the plant had increased its leaf length and began to sprout new ones as well. Since then I've been trimming any damaged leaves as they've proved to stay at a shortened length. Fast forward two months ans this plant has easily become my favorite with it's beautiful leaves creating a canopy on the surface of my 60 gallon tall aquarium. Definitely recommend patience with this one and you won't be disappointed!

Nice bulbs

These came with 3 to 4 leaves. The largest leaves have doubled in size in the first week.
