Oxygen Plants

Capricorn

Capercaillie (Myriophyllum brasiliensis) is a hardy oxygen plant that grows quickly and is essential for balanced and clear pond water. The oxygen plant blocks the sun and provides excellent shelter for fish and other aquatic animals.

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

Alfalfa (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.

Alfalfa 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 featherweed, 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.

Capercaillie 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 out the plant in the spring or summer to prevent it from taking over other plants or areas of the pond. Capercaillie 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 featherweed does not meet your expectations, feel free to contact us. We will then offer the necessary support or a replacement, in accordance with our warranty conditions.

Capricorn

Capercaillie, officially known as Myriophyllum brasiliensis, is a popular oxygen plant that plays a vital role in the health and clarity of pond water. Native to South America, this water-purifying plant has proven to be an indispensable addition to any pond, large or small.

Capricorn function

One of the most prized properties of verbena is its ability to promote clear water. By absorbing excess nutrients from the water, spruce effectively reduces algae growth, keeping the water clear and maintaining a healthy ecosystem. In addition, the dense foliage of featherweed provides a perfect hiding and breeding place for fish and other aquatic animals, encouraging pond biodiversity.

Capricorn care

Capricorn is also notable for its adaptability and easy care, making it an ideal choice for novice pond lovers and experienced gardeners alike. This plant is hardy and can survive in various climates and conditions, meaning it will flourish year after year with minimal effort on the part of the pond owner.
