Description

Myriophyllum sp. "Roraima" is a milfoil for larger aquariums that was apparently found in the Brazilian state of Roraima. This fine-leaved plant develops a magnificent orange-yellow to brown-red colouration under water, is very fast-growing and easy to cultivate. The shoots grow to over 50 cm long and about 5 cm wide and branch regularly. Five finely pinnate leaves are arranged in a whorl.

This Myriophyllum has no special requirements and also grows in medium-hard water and without CO2 addition. However, it unfolds its full splendour with rather strong lighting, complete macro- and micronutrient supply via the water column and CO2 addition. The rapid growth makes frequent pruning necessary, and pruning leads to bushier growth. Propagation is easy by head cuttings and partial cuttings. The Roraima Milfoil tolerates a wide temperature range and is also suitable for cold-water aquaria.

The Roraima Milfoil looks magnificent as a bush at least 30 cm high in the background or middle ground of larger tanks. As a fast-growing plant, it can be recommended for the initial planting of newly set-up aquariums.

Étonnante à son arrivée en pot in-vitro, car la plante émergée ne ressemble pas du tout à sa version immergée (arrive verte avec des tiges ondulées et des petites feuilles ovales). (read more)
