Myriophyllum brasiliensis red stem Red stemmed parrot’s feather

Description

Bright green feathery foliage with red stems above the water. If planted deeper, the leaves convert to an underwater leaf form which is a darker reddy colour and it is these which oxygenate the water.

Repotting or planting

9cm oxygenating plants require potting into a larger mesh basket. Place in a pond no deeper than 1/3 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish. 1ltr oxygenating plants do not require repotting, place in pond no deeper than 1/2 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish. 2ltr plants do not require repotting, as they are larger more established plants they can be placed up to the maximum recommended depth. There is no need to remove the mesh basket.
