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.

Really want this one to do well, I've always wanted a carpet plant to do well now I have CO2 injection and led Fluval Aquasky 2.0

As said in previous review, plant arrived 3 days after ordering, and plant very pale looking. Have planted in aquarium, but is slowly dying off to nothing. Cannot see these plants surviving much longer. a bit disapointed with the product

Slightly disapointed. Plants came within 3 days of ordering, but very pale in colour ( yellowish ) in appearance. Have placed them in the tank, hoping they will pick up, and take off

Very good condition, I’m pleased!

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+
