Aponogeton madagascariensis help

I got 2 of these lace plants. I read somewhere said that they like cold temp. water like ~70. Is that true? When I got them, they have huge and tall lace leaves. Some of them had die off but I saw a couple of new leaves shooting out from the bulb. Anyone with experience growing this plant, tips are welcome.

thanks,

mine did that. its normal for them to do that when they change place/water conditions.

they prefer it down in the 70's however mine grew just fine and got huge with water about 76-78 degrees

I have them growing in a 55 that's at 82 degrees. I've only had them about four weeks but they are putting up new large leaves and look healthy.

Not to say they wouldn't grow better in lower temps, just that warm water won't kill them.

Can I ask how did you plant it? Did you cover the bulb completely or leave the top a little uncover?

thanks,

The ones i've seen come in at work typically drop most if not all of their large leaves when they get introduced to our tanks. They do seem to bounce back fast though.

I heard that they need a resting period but i'm not sure how to do that or i'd give them a shot, they've always been one of my favorite plants.

i think mine is resting now..i havent seen it in a month or two...maybe three..i dunno.

leave some of the bulb above the substrate, mine really liked being in front of the filter. but i think all aponogetons like water current
mine got big...you can see it spun around itself desimatting that whole area..i did flower and see, but i have yet to see babies..maybe one day though.

This is one of those times when the search feature is very useful, we've talked about lace plants a lot here.

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".
