Care Tips - Do not throw away a dormant basket of Aponogeton distachyos in the summer thinking it has died. It is an early season plant that grows leaves and flowers from February to May in cool water. In the Summer months it goes dormant and, like a daffodil bulb, disappears completely from view.
When it starts to grow back add a XL feed balls for aquatic plants to give it a boost and it will respond with more leaf and flower.
Extra info - This deep water surface cover plant is a good complement to summer flowering waterlilies to give surface cover early in the year.
