A true oxygenator, spiked water milfoil (Myriophyllum Spicatum) remains under the water. It has reddish foliage in whorls of four. It can grow very deep but is best established in shallower water and allowed to acclimatise gradually. It grows in still or slow-moving 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.
