Myriophyllum tuberculatum (INSANE Red Aquarium Plant For Sale)
AS OF 1-29 these are about 2-3 inches tall!! (We are trying to grow them out,but it’s winter with minimal sun) STILL SOLID
I wish I would have found this aquarium plant sooner. Wow. I had avoided Myriophyllum tuberculatum because I thought it would be a little too tough to keep. Not so. This Myriophyllum tuberculatum is actually thriving for us despite the fact that it has finer leaves and is red. This plant is similar to a Foxtail or other kinds of Myrio.
I like the leaf pattern on this plant more than others. If you look closely it has a unique woven look to its leaves. We are currently keeping this plant in one of our higher light tanks and it is doing well. This Myriophyllum tuberculatum can handle lower light but won't give you the nicer reddish colors and would be more of a darker brown. It makes a great contrast to any planted aquarium. Buy our Iron Supplement and keep this guy looking this red!
This plant is currently about 5-8 inches tall.
Care Scale of 1-10: ( 1- it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)
We give Myriophyllum tuberculatum at 4 out of 10. It likes a hard cut and replant. (You can propagate it easily this way and make it bushier)
Can handle super low lighting but will grow skinnier, grows faster in high light.
Where to Plant:
It came looking very healthy. I received 11 stems which were more than I expected . I was very thrilled! I was able to share with my daughter. The stems were a good size, around 4-5 inches. The color is beautiful and really stands out in my tank. They are a bit spread out now but I think they will definitely be a show piece when they grow a bit more.
I find it pretty in my tank. I did find it smaller than expected, and not as red. It did come in the mail healthy and rather adequate timing.
The plant arrived fast and was beautiful when put in my tank. Easily one of my favorites in the whole tank right now
This is the second time I have made purchased from Dustin's Fishtanks. The plants are healthy, look great and the moss is awesome for the sunken ship I have in the tank. Will continue to only buy from Dustins!
Gorgeous plant! Arrived quick and in great shape!
