Myriophyllum Spicatum, also known as spiked water milfoil, is a popular aquatic plant that is known for its oxygenating properties. This plant remains mostly submerged under the water, with only its reddish foliage emerging in whorls of four. It is typically found in still or slow-moving bodies of water, and can grow to depths of up to 15 feet. Myriophyllum Spicatum is an easy-to-care-for plant that makes a great addition to any pond or aquarium. It is best established in shallower water and allowed to acclimatise gradually. Does not look good out of water.
Repotting or planting
We suggest planting 2-3 bunches per 1m². They benefit from the base of the plant being pushed into soil or gravel.
Can be dropped in pond as a weighted bunch but it benefits from being planted in soil. Once established this plant can grow as deep as 3m.
