Dwarf Red Parrot's Feather (Myriophyllum brasiliensis)
Dwarf Red Parrot's Feather is an incredibly versatile and attractive plant that is great for aquariums, ponds, terrariums, and paludariums!
Dwarf Red Parrot's Feather (Myriophyllum brasiliensis) is a South American floating plant that is known for its fluffy texture and bright red stems. This hardy plant propagates quickly and can provide shade to areas of the aquarium, which will encourage more reclusive species to come out of hiding. This is a truly beautiful and very beneficial plant for aquariums with gentle to moderate water flow. It can also be bunched and planted in the substrate. This dwarf species typically grows to 3-4 inches (7.6 - 10.2 cm)
Care is extremely easy for Dwarf Red Parrot's Feather. It can thrive in a relatively wide pH range as well as moderate to high lighting, possibly even low lighting. Under these simple conditions, it will multiply very quickly and provide significant denitrification as well as oxygenation, which is particularly important in aquariums with low water flow. It does not require CO2 supplementation.
Like most plants, Dwarf Red Parrot's Feather will benefit from supplementation such as Seachem Flourish, Flourish Excel, nitrogen, iron, and other plant supplements.
