Originating from the U.S the Micranthemum umbrosum is an exquisite foreground plant, its round leaves are just half a cm but are a brilliant shade of light green. It is adaptable to less light conditions and minimum fertilizers; however its best growth is spurred through light and carbon dioxide injection.

Very easy to shape using sharp scissors and a bit of training. Perfect for nano cubes.

The plant arrived in excellent condition, there wasn't a single dead or dieing leaf! The plant is exactly what I needed to create a downhill carpet and it looks amazing

Ask a question about this product
how much is the postage?


Please see here https://www.aquaessentials.co.uk/page.html?id=2

does it tend to grow upwards more ore does it tend to forma carpet? and if it grows up how tall does it get? (approx)

That all depends on how much light it gets but it generally stays low

so how tall would you say it gets? would it do as a background plant in a nano?

No it's a foreground plant

do you leave these plants in the pot or do you plant into substrate?


always remove from pots

Is this version of Micranthemum the Monte Carlo sp. ?



Apart from 123 grow do you have the MC variety in a pot like this?


not atm - sorry

Best way of attachment to wood
