Description

Micranthemum 'Monte-Carlo' is found in cooler waters of Europe and has round and fresh green leaves. Larger than Hemianthus but smaller than Micromanthum umbrosum - it's a super foreground plant and VERY EASY TO GROW. In fact so easy, it's suitable for beginners who have never grown any plants before.

It's very forgiving and best to plant in groups and it's happy to grow under lower light and be shaded (most unusual). Will do better with liquid carbon (like Neutro CO2).

1 pot is sufficient for an area of 15x15cm so bear this in mind when working out how many pots you need. Each pot can be split up into 6 sections and then spread throughout that 15x15cm area.

Great plants thought they were small at first 1 week later growing strong using dry start my first time trying for a full carpet in 3 weeks. Let's see

Small plant for the front of my tank. No deterioration since planting a few weeks ago. Looking forward to seeing it spread.

Not happy with this plant hardly grown in 3 week

Definitely give this plant 5 stars, planted 20 of them 2 weeks ago and they have taken off fantastically, to the point where I’ve already had to give them a trim in places! Covered really nice. Would recommend this plant to anyone. So easy to grow and after the hassle I’ve had with algae the past couple of times I nearly gave up. Just the boast I needed! Just need to figure out why my buces are going holy on the leaves and I’m well away.

We don't seem to have enough light for these to grow well.

Guest
is liquid carbon ok with these plants?

 
Staff

Yes


 
Guest
will it grow in sand ok?

 
Staff

It definitely prefers substrate but with a decent amount of root tabs will grow


 
Guest
I planted these in substrate and believe to have appropriate light as suggested, I feed everyday , all other plants that arrived seem to be doing well but these are tinged brown, I've noticed couple of same reviews, is there anything that can be done to revive them, it gets quite expensive if they just die off.

Improve water circulation 

reduce lighting intensity

add pressurised CO2 if you have it

add more fertilisers such as Neutro+


 
Guest
Are these snail free?

 
Staff

Only tissue culture can be guaranteed but we keep them above the water line minimising any chance of snails


 
Guest
is there any chance this could grow in an outdoor shallow ornamental pond with a nutrient rich aquarium substrate?

 
Staff

if it was 20C, moist outside then yes


 
Guest
Is it suitable for dry start planting?

 
Staff

Yes
