Let's play Name That Plant. I picked this up at the last meeting. It just had two leaves and a small bulb. It has grown a few more leaves since then. What is it? Some sort of Aponogeton? The leaves have an interesting pattern. It looks like an Echinodorus, but they don't have bulbs. Thanks.

Looks like an Aponogeton to me.

It is probably Aponogeton undulatus. I say this partly because the pattern on the leaves is distinctive for this species, and because CrownMan in the club grows it and brings young plants for trade regularly.

Yes it is A. Undulatus. It is the only Aponogeton that will reproduce with runner from the base upward. When the young plant has a nice size bulb and a couple of small roots, it is ok to cut it off the runner and plant it.

Thanks for the info. Does this one require an annual dormancy period like other Aponogeton? I saw a couple of online references stating that it does not.

I have never had one go dormant. I do know that snails like to nibble on this plant though. It does like a little root fertilization in the substrate, good lighting and space. I use Seachem Root Tabs or capsules of Osmocote.
