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.

It was super difficult to separate properly! However, i got loads of it and it grew super quickly. Its gotten so big in my 60L tank that some pieces are 25cm in height!!

Healthy strong plants that were securely packaged and quickly delivered. All had a good sized quantity of healthy growth and good roots. Have been planted in my tank with Tropica Aquarium soil and CO2 injection and are rooting well and are healthy. Zero leaf melt witnessed and no snails etc. Will eagerly use Aquaessentials again for their plants.

Got to be my most favourite carpeting plant of all. Seems to love space to grow and lots of light.

Bought these for my goldfish and now that they've had weeks to settle in, I can confirm they are good quality plants. They arrived in great condition and are now sending out new roots and leaves. 100% recommend!

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.

 
Staff

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


 
Guest
How would I clean the gravel in a carpeted tank?

 
Staff

hover above it - never plunge
