Aponogeton longiplumulosus is an aquatic bulb plant native to the island nation of Madagascar, along with many of the other Aponogetons used in the Aquarium plant trade.  Aponogeton longiplumulosus is an excellent aquarium plant as the central focal point in a planted aquarium, displaying long dark green leaves that have undulating margins.  Aponogeton longiplumulosus are bulb plants and will sometimes go dormant to the bulb stage of the plant.  Just be patient and new leaves will begin to sprout.  Sometimes it is helpful to take the bulb out of the aquarium for a resting period and keep it stored in moist sand until leaves begin to sprout.  Then plant the Aponogeton bulb back into the aquarium.

Good plant... if it sprouts April 19, 2012
Reviewer: Mike from Boston, MA United States  
I ordered this and received 3 bulbs. Unfortunately, only one of them sprouted. The other 2 turned fuzzy and had to be thrown out.

Great Big Plant July 11, 2011
Reviewer: Timothy Haut from Churchton, MD United States  
I've had this plant in a 30 inch tall tank for 6 years or better, it is nice that the leaves grow almost to the surface without taking up a lot of room in the tank like a large Sword would, they will flower a couple of times a year on a long thin stem that can be 5 to 6 feet long, it's a nice center piece plant and easy to grow.

Great Plant! April 3, 2010
Reviewer: Alicia Martin from NY United States  
I received this plant as a bulb.  After a few weeks in my tank it shot up over 12" tall!

This plant has now been in my tank for a few months, and is doing great.
