Myriphyllum Aquaticum is a  pretty plant with dense foliage that gives great coverage for fry.  It does well from moderate light to high light and grows very fast but can be easily trimmed and the trimmings replanted. Since Myriphyllum Aquaticum is a fast grower it works well as an algae buster by soaking up extra nitrate in your aquarium that might cause algae problems. When grown under strong light the leaves will take on a reddish hue as seen in the picture.

Planting Instructions

Stem plants are usually cuttings of plants that normally don't come with roots. This is how stem plants are sold in the aquatic plant industry although at times my stem plants may come with roots because I have been growing them out. All stem plants come with a plant weight that holds the plant in place and is safe for your tank. 

To plant just let the weight lay on your substrate and the stems will grow roots throughout your substrate. You can also plant the tips, about 1/4" in your substrate if you prefer.

Please go here for more information on planting 

Please note this plant can not be sold to the states listed below due to that state prohibiting them.
