- Micranthemum ‘Monte Carlo” is a low growing aquatic plant that originates from New Zealand.
- It is a perfect foreground plant that if given sufficient lighting and nutrients can grow into a thick carpet of green foliage.
- The leaves are small and round with a beautiful bright green coloration that can nicely offset any neutral toned substrate.
- This plant is very similar to Hemianthus Callitrichoides (HC/Dwarf Baby Tears) but the leaves are larger and in our experience, its generally easier to grow.
- When hobbyist are having trouble growing HC, we recommend giving Monte Carlo a try.
- High lighting and Co2 injection is necessary to keep this plant low growing.
- Vertical growing thin stalks are an indication of lack of lighting while yellowing leaves can mean nutrition deficiency.
- Thin leaves can also hint at a lack of Co2.
- This plant can grow quickly and require regular trimming when kept under proper conditions.
- This plant can grow submerged or emersed in dry start aquariums and Wabi Kusa.
- Because this plant is small with tiny roots, it can prove difficult to keep planted into the substrate.
- In this case, dry start can help by allowing time for the roots to anchor into the substrate before flooding the tank.
