Micranthemum species ‘Monte Carlo’ is a fast growing foreground plant when the optimal requirements are met.

Micranthemum Monte-Carlo can be compared with the very popular Hemianthus Calitrichoides, in that the leaves look very similar and it carpets very well too. Micranthemum Monte-Carlo leaves are slightly bigger, ranging from 5mm-10mm. It is a bright shade of green and is a wonderful plant to carpet. A great alternative to HC. It does not need as much light as HC and is considered slightly easier to grow. Good levels of CO2 will ensure this plant does well.

Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo' comes from Argentina. 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 plant can grow in light shadow, but requires good light conditions, as well as CO2 additive, in order to develop optimally and become really compact.

Got a few of these to start my planted tank. Plants arrived in great condition and are bedding in nicely.

Plants arrived quickly even with standard delivery and are of a great quality. I purchased some from an LFS and those are not doing well, but the ones from aquarium gardens have been now planted for just over two weeks and are growing crazily and have covered twice the area they were planted in. Will definitely be buying all my future plants from these guys and would recommend them to everyone. ★★★★★
