Spiked Water Milfoil

Myriophyllum spicatum

A true oxygenator, this plant remains under the water. It has reddish foliage in whorls of four. It can grow from very deep but is best established in shallower water and allowed to acclimatise gradually.

This plant is evergreen and will retain some stems/leaves throughout winter. 

Supplied as a weighted bunch, this requires planting soon after arrival. Partially bed the thickest ends into aquatic soil and pin down where necessary to keep it from floating out. The plant will then send out roots.

The recommended depth in water is calculated as the distance between the top of the basket and the water surface. Therefore "0" would be the basket rim at the water surface.
