Aponogeton rigidifolius grows slowly and makes great demands on light quality.
After a few months in favourable growing conditions it can develop into a large,
very attractive plant with beautiful, dark-green fluted leaves. Unlike most other
Aponogeton species, it does not have a swollen root but a rhizome, and it does
not need a dormant period. It makes no special demands on the water quality,
and thrives in both hard and soft water. Also available in reddish varieties.
