Holy Growth Batman!

Our Aponogeton Ulvaceus has grown these two shoots in 3 or 4 days...I should probably trim them...just amazing how fast things are growing in our tank!

Give it a week, it'll fill your tank.

Wish I had some, the leaf structure is so cool. I think it's similar to swords. Trim at base where shoot starts, so really just trim the leaves that are too long

The growth on them slows down eventually. There is a lot of energy stored in the bulb that causes that explosive growth.

My shrimp and GBR love swimming and climbing around them, I usually leave the shoots and plus I think it looks really cool.
