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.

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

the plants did not look in the best condition when they arrived, and after a month in my large aquarium - medium light strength and running CO2 - they appear to be dying off slowly. Some sections appear to he creeping out and trying to carpet, however, most do not.

I'm very pleased with the condition this plant was received in, and how well established it already was. Very bushy and made for easy planting in a new aquarium. It's taken very nicely. Using stratum as a base substrate, topped with fluorite black.

Arrived in tip top condition, I’ve had this in my tank for 4 weeks now and my advice would be “patience “ build it and it will grow .

Ask a question about this product
Are these plants grown emersed or submersed? Thanks



can you post to australia


Yes but at your own risk

portion size ?


fairly similar to the picture 

is liquid carbon ok with these plants?



will it grow in sand ok?


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

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+

Are these snail free?


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

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


if it was 20C, moist outside then yes
