Aponogeton crispus is probably the easiest and most robust of the Aponogetons. It requires a mineral-rich substrate and growth is always best in soft, slightly acidic water. It prefers moderate to bright lighting from above.When these conditions are met a mass of leaves will be formed and flowering occurs. It prefers bright light, and will tolerate a wide temperature range (c. 15 - 32C). Does better planted in an established aquarium, because of its liking for a nutrient rich environment.
Wavy-edged sword leaf like plant that needs rich substrate.

Hardy plant for new tank November 4, 2011
Reviewer: Darlene Harrison from Avon, IN United States  
When I first got this plant, it had two long leaves that didn't look great. It didn't look anything like the bushy picture. (I had it shipped 2-day). I put it in the tank and it quickly died off. Within a week, it had three new leaves sprouting from the substrate. After a month or so, it is now forming a nice thick bunch of leaves, promising to be a very nice looking plant. I'll keep you posted on how it goes. Thanks for the tip on the root system.

centerpiece plant! February 15, 2007
Reviewer: ken sacco from salem, MA United States  
wow! The crispus is truly an amazing plant.  For me, it has proven incredibly hardy.  It was grown from a bulb no less, and has grown into an ever-expanding centerpiece to my aquarium.  It began in a brand new aquarium, and is now a year old, living in varying conditions, with never so much as a hint of distress.  This is a great plant for the beginner...one warning though...the crispus develops very large and expansive root systems, so it should be somewhat isolated from other plants in your tank.
