Myriophyllum heterophyllum also commonly known as Twoleaf Watermilfoil, Myrio Red, or Red Foxtail is a fast growing stem plant native to the lakes and streams of Southern North America and Central America. Myrio Red has a beautiful red coloration, and is unique looking with its feather like leaves. These plants will grow very rapidly in the aquarium, and are amphibious, meaning they can grow partially above the water.
The Myriophyllum heterophyllum plant is ideal for hiding equipment in the back of the tank due to its bushy leaves and providing refuge for newborn fish. Reproduction within this species is by cuttings. Simply cut the plant at the desired height and plant into the gravel.
The optimal way to fertilize stem plants like this Red Myrio is with liquid fertilizer. Root tabs work as well but aren’t nearly as effective as liquid fertilizer since stem plants feed more from the water column. Checkout our liquid fertilizer by clicking Here, your plants will thank you!
