Description

For a long time, this name was used for the Red Milfoil (Myriophyllum tuberculatum) until true green Myriophyllum mattogrossense was imported into Germany from Ecuador. Very decorative light green milfoil popular in aquascaping. M. mattogrossense needs a good nutrient supply.

Myriophyllum mattogrossense comes from the tropical lowlands of South America. This species is relatively new as aquarium plant, even though its name has long been known in the hobby. The red milfoil Myriophyllum tuberculatum was (and sometimes still is) erroneously sold under the name M. mattogrossense for around 20 years. In 1994, red milfoil was correctly identified as M. tuberculatum by A.E. Orchard.
True M. mattogrossense is all green, and was first imported from Eduador by Christel Kasselmann in 1990. Its popularity has been growing ever since due to its beauty and easy cultivation. It is relatively often found in trade now.

This milfoil is one of the easier-to-cultivate plants. At least medium light (0.5 watts per litre or above) should be provided, though. M. mattogrossense is especially suitable for medium-lit tanks with no CO2 injection. (read more)

The plant arrived in very good conditions and started growing immediately at high speed. I expected a bigger plant, instead it was quite small. (read more)

Great way of doing stem plants

You get a good portion of the plant with this pot. It can be easily (but delicately!) pulled apart into little clumps once the gel has been washed off. (read more)

Sah sehr gut aus und war auch reichlich - nach 3 Tagen war aber alles restlos zerfallen. Kann natürlich auch an den Bedingungen bei mir liegen, deshalb mittlere Bewertung.
