DOOA STYLE #5 ‘An aquatic plant with fluted leaves, native to Africa’

kota IwahoriKota Iwahori

Aponogeton longiplumulosus, an endemic species of Madagascar, is a very attractive aquatic plant with transparent leaves with fluted margins. Besides A. longiplumulosus, there are aquatic plants with such fluted leaves in Africa, including A. capuronii of the same Aponogeton genus, and Crinum natans and C. calamistratum from the Crinum genus. Although they are all well-known aquatic plants, I couldn’t get over how amazing they look after observing them again. Here, the dimmable Magnet Light G is placed directly on the glass lid to efficiently distribute the light. When the surroundings are dark, all you can see is a softly glowing aquatic world where the fascinating aquatic plant invites you to a magical space.
