Potamogeton tricarinatus

Potamogeton tricarinatus

General information: The form cultured at Aquagreen comes from the oldest river in the World. The Finke River near Aice Springs. This is a nice plant producing lace patterned underwater foliage that has a leaf shape more slender than the floating leaf. It grows very quickly racing for the surface needing constant pruning if you want to keep the nice underwater form.

Cultivation notes : Very easy to grow, likes medium to bright light. Water quality not important, I have seen it in hard alkaline water and soft water. It grows well in the warm soft water at Aquagreen.

Distribution : Found in all Australian states. In the NT it is mostly found in the dryer parts.

Selling details : Sold as a bunch of cut stems.
