Myriophyllum mattogrossense (Dark and Fluffy)
Myriophyllum mattogrossense is a beautiful dark red.
If you want an EASY contrast of fluffy color, this Myrio is for you. We have kept it in lower light conditions with success. Like nearly all plants, this one will do better and grown faster in more light.
All Myrio have that great fully texture to them. This one is no exception. This plant would make a great natural spawning mop for Rainbow Fish or a great hiding spot for live bearer fry.
Propagation is simple. You just pinch it our cut it at the level you would like and replant the cutting. This also will make the Myrio bushier.
The leaves or fronds make an awesome fan shape. This plant is new to us. It is comparable to
Myriophyllum tuberculatum. (If you are thinking of trying a Myrio, start with this one!
Could not be happier with the plants I received. Very agreeable price also. :)
Absolutely gorgeous!!!!!’ I’m totally in love with them thank you so much Dustin
These are great! Full, fluffy, and fabulous! They even threw in an extra one! Thank you so much Dustin's Fishtanks for the best aquarium plants I've found thus far! I wish I'd found you sooner and bought all my plants from you! The best out there!
This plant looks very similar to Myriophyllum tuberculatum; still not 100% sure of the difference - perhaps a tiny tinge of green at the top. I've had this plant for close to a month (I always wait on writing reviews so i can comment on the plant). It likes my low tech tank and has grown quite a bit and put out roots. I was doing maint. on the tank and disturb one stem and noticed it had quite a root system at the bottom in the inert substrate. I'm not 100% sure i could identify this plant from Myriophyllum tuberculatum as both were in the same order but it came in pretty healthy (the Myriophyllum tuberculatum was less healthy in that order). I do have a very strong light and my earlier experience suggest that a light like fluval plant 3.0 is not strong enough for this plant to thrive.
Nice plants. Very happy
