For many years this plant was considered an aquarium "annual" because after a year it would go dormant and then rarely come back. When more attention was paid to this plants needs, it lasted much longer.

It has long been know that this plant like most Aponogetons does not tolerate high temps for very long, which is why I am very surprised to see Amano use this plant in a Discus tank. Kasselmann describes the needs of this plant as quote " should only be kept by specialists who can consistently meet the high requirements of this species in the long term: a low temperature level, strong water movement, soft, acidic water, nutrient-rich substrate, medium light intensity and regular rest phases (no dry period)"

I grow them in non heated, room temp tanks with strong water circulation. My water is pretty soft.

HeyPaul, send me some undulata! :D
