Micranthemum 'Monte-Carlo' comes from cooler waters in Europe and Eastern Asia.It has compact, round and fresh light green leaves on creeping stalks and creates a fast-growing carpet in the front of the aquarium. The leaves are ½-1cm and somewhat bigger than e. g. Hemianthus Callitrichoides ”Cuba”. Planted in small bundles in the bottom bed. The plant can grow in light shadow under other plants, but requires good light conditions, as well as CO2 additive, in order to develop optimally and become really compact.

Have used this plant as a staple "filler" for years. With decent light and CO2 it forms a good carpet. Also works well when clumps are wedged in-between stones which it will cling to and crawl over. Frequent trimming will result in smaller leaves if you want a look more akin to "Cuba" rather than "Monte Carlo"

Very happy with the quality of these 1-2 grow plants. Looks to have settled in quickly but only time will tell if this will grow well in my low light/tall tank.

Only planted this in my aquarium last Thursday (Monday today) and so far it is doing fine. I don't anticipate any problems with it.

Brilliant low maintenance carpet plant, I provide my plants using liquid carbon and npk fertiliser and within 2 weeks you see a big change! Within 4-6 weeks my carpet is near complete!
