Aponogeton longiplumulosus has relatively large, fluted leaves that are often semi-transparent and very delicate. They can grow quite tall in the home aquarium. Longiplumulosus will look the best at the back of the aquarium or when used as a mid ground plant.

Aponogeton plants grow from a tuber or bulb. The amount and size of leaves on the bulb may vary at the time of purchase. They will eventually lose its foliage and retreat into dormancy as a reaction to seasonal changes like temperature or drought in the wild. In good conditions, the bulb should store enough energy to re-sprout after several weeks to begin the growth cycle again. A nutrient-rich substrate will help provide them with the nourishment they need to recover from their "hibernation". The bulb can be left in the substrate during this dormancy, or it can be removed and stored in a wet media like peat moss or sand until it begins to sprout again. If replanting a bulb, make sure that it is planting right-side-up as a bulb that is planted upside-down is not likely to recover.

Most Aponogetons will grow very long, flowing leaves. Some may emerge from the water while most will float across the surface. Take care that any floating leaves do not shade plants underneath it that may need the light. Many Aponogetons have also been known to flower in home aquariums, producing an attractive (and fragrant) bloom.
