Myriophyllum mattogrossense

Myriophyllum matogrossense originates from Mato Grosso in the Rio Amazonas, Brazil. It has decorative and feather-like, reddish stems (30-60 cm long) and finely divided bright green leaves (5 cm wide).

In good light conditions the leaves spread out in a fan shape. Myriophyllum is relatively easy and is suitable for the background. It needs to be pruned frequently to maintain its bushy form.

It is fast growing and requires a good deal of nutrition.

A good starter plant.
