A new milfoil for larger aquaria, assumed to originate from the Brazilian state of Roraima. When cultivated under water, this fine-leaved plant takes on a beautiful orange-yellow to brownish-red colour. It grows fast and is easy to cultivate. It probably is a local form of Myriophyllum aquaticum. Its emerged shoots have blue-green strongly water-repellent leaves typical for Myriophyllum aquaticum. When planted into a tank, they soon develop into their reddish-brown submersed form and soon start growing again. This milfoil from Roraima is best used as large bush in the back- or middle ground of large tanks. As fast grower, it can be used for first planting new tanks. Myriophyllum sp. "Roraima" can be cultivated as house plant on the windowsill and you can even keep it outside during the warm season. Its emerged stems float on the water surface or creep along wet ground.

I ordered this plant in variant "in Vitro" because "bunch" was not at stock. The plants looked in good condition,healthy and in that "pot" there were really high numbers of them, but...I wondered why all are green when they have a brown color at pictures. As I know now "in Vitro" is just "semi finished product", its not plant as it really looks. I planted much of them in my tank and after 3 days I see that they are growing at the tops but now with brown color as it has to be. So now I have to wait until they grow up into the right form. For that reason I recommend to buy "bunch" variant, because with this "in Vitro" variant, result is not so sure and will take a long time to see it. I can't rate the exact plant just "in Vitro" variant, for now.

99% I love all the products on this site, so this is likely an anomaly, but the plants arrived a little tired and mushy and I've only got about 15 stems that have actually taken...everyone else reported that they grow fast (as does the site) but mine have not done much at all. As I said, normally I'm happy with Aquasabi products, just not lucky this time around.
This plant arrives green, after a few days the leaves turn the brownish color. In my case the plant grows very large even before all of the green is brown. (after 20 days) (read more)
