I apologize for the picture quality, I will take a better picture later.


There are two kinds of plant in the picture that I have found depicted in Myriophyllum matogrossense green profiles. The "leaf" is "flat".

The one on the right with a yellow arrow is the plant I have found more often. Although is somewhat physically different than Myriophyllum matogrossense RED.



The one on the left with a red arrow is also depicted as the same plant but they are quite different, this one grows like 3 times faster than the one with the yellow arrow, the "leaf" is "bushy" and doesn't root very well to the substrate. This plant is looks exactly the same as Myriophyllum matogrossense RED with a black arrow, same exact plant just different color although the RED MG "leaf is "flat".

Could you please identify them correctly?

Thank you very much.

The plant on the right is M. mattogrossense. There is really no red or green. It's simply confusion with M. tuberculatum, which is always a solid rust color.

On the left is a Utricularia species, though it's hard to say which one. Possibly U. aurea.
