For oxygen plants, I recommend a minimum of 10 to 12 individual plants per m³ (1000 liters of water) and 2 baskets of 8 plants per m². The amount needed depends on how quickly you want the pond to balance and your visual requirements.

Frequently asked questions about Myriophyllum brasiliensis

Pond Advice

parrot feather (Myriophyllum brasiliensis) is an excellent choice for ponds because of its rapid growth and ability to produce significant amounts of oxygen. This contributes to a healthy and balanced pond ecosystem, helps keep the water clear and supports the lives of fish and other aquatic organisms by providing hiding places.

parrot feather helps reduce algae growth by competitively absorbing nutrients from the water that would otherwise be used by algae. This process is known as nutrient competition. In addition, the shade provided by the plants reduces light penetration into the pond, which is a crucial factor in algae growth.

All our aquatic plants, including parrot feather, are carefully selected for their winter hardiness and are fully equipped to endure the winter period without any problems. So you don't have to worry about extra care during the colder months; these plants can withstand various climate conditions and will bloom beautifully again in the spring.

parrot feather requires relatively little maintenance. Make sure the plant has plenty of room to grow and is not overgrown by other plants. It may be necessary to thin the plant in the spring or summer to prevent it from taking over other plants or areas of the pond. parrot feather thrives best in sun to partial shade and in water of varying depths.

Yes, you get a one hundred percent growth and flowering guarantee on the featherweed plants from us. We grow them ourselves in our aquatic plant nursery, where we ensure the best conditions. If your parrot feather does not meet your expectations, feel free to contact us. We will then provide the necessary support or a replacement, in accordance with our warranty conditions.
