Overview

Myriophyllum pinnatum is commonly known as Cutleaf Watermilfoil or Green Foxtail, and grows naturally in the lakes and streams of Southern North America, and Central America. This plant has a beautiful green coloration, and with its fine leaves is very delicate looking. These plants will grow very rapidly in the aquarium, and are amphibious, meaning they can grow partially above the water.

The Myriophyllum pinnatum is a rapidly growing plant that is ideal for planting in the background of the aquarium to hide equipment, and for providing refuge for newborn fish. Be carefull that this plant does not shade any of the other plants in the aquarium. It requires a moderate level of light of 2 to 3 watts per gallon provided by full spectrum (5000-7000K) bulbs.

Reproduction within this species is by cuttings. Simply cut the plant at the height that you desire, but leave room for growth, then strip about an inch of the stem and plant into the gravel. If allowed to grow out of the water, this plant will produce a flower.

The Myriophyllum pinnatum benefits from regular additions of CO2, iron rich fertilizers, and trace elements.
