Giant baby Tears Portions

Giant baby Tears Portions

( Micranthemum umbrosum) Giant baby Tears is a wonderful creeping foreground plant. It needs High Light to stay very low growing and small. The higher the light the shorter the plant! Pinching the tips will cause the plant to spread quicker. It is a hardy plant that is usually only affected by low light levels, which cause it to grow upright instead of prostrate. This is sold as a rooted mass of stems filling a 2 fl oz. cup this plant likes light for full leafy growth. Plant the stems apart enough to allow for light or the bases will become stems only and have leaves only toward the top where it can get light. they will grow fuller with leaves and fill out the space well. this is easily cut to increase your initial stem yield as well. NOTE: get the mass of stems wet before you try to pull them apart or untangle them.. this make s it much easier and reduces leaf loss due to tangling!

Glosso portions

Glosso portions

(Glossostigma elantoides) This is by far my favorite carpet plant. I have had both great successes and great failures with this wonderful little plant. Take each strand (you'll normally have 1-2in of plant) and, with tweezers, bury them along your substrate making sure only the leaves are showing (no roots). Each strand should be placed about 1/3 in from each other, this will allow for optimal growth without the plant overshadowing itself to begin with. If you want a thick carpet then plant it 80-90% of where you want it to grow. It needs high-very high light to grow as a LOW carpet, if it doesn't get high light then it will grow upwards towards the light instead of a carpet. It also loves ferts and CO2. After a couple of weeks you will see the glosso spread rapidly, and if you use CO2 it will produce thousands of tiny bubbles. After 2 months it was a lush carpet that I had to prune to keep it from covering everything. It also has and immense root system so if you have to remove it for whatever reason, the whole carpet will come up in one go (not called a carpet plant for nothing) and take a lot of substrate with it. Sold as a 4 ounce portion cup worth like seen in the pic. this...

Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo'

Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo'

( Micranthemum tweediei) Wow!! do you want dwarf baby tears but are tired of it dying??? Is Giant baby Tears too large and grows up too fast? If so then you have been wanting this plant. Micranthemum ' Monte Carlo ' as it is commonly called is the best of ALL worlds.. It likes high light but med light is more than enough to make this carpet your tank well. CO2 is always helpful but in no way required for this plant.. It will take hard to soft water and alkaline to acid AND-- get this-- It has a more weeping habit instead of growing straight up. as a carpet in the tank it will form dense carpet and grow upwards.. KEEP it trimmed or the bottom part will die off. However If you attach it to rock or driftwood it becomes dense and hangs downward instead of going straight up. Leaves are round and somewhere between dwarf baby Tears and Giant baby Tears in size.. Leaf color is bright green and growth habit is dense especially with regular trimming.. Give it two weeks after initial planting for the first trim. Then trim every 2 weeks to keep it dense and green and happy. This truly is an EASY plant.. this is sold as a 4 fl oz portion of stems but I will be offering mat forms very soon!

The plant is commonly known as "Mud Babies" here in the south, because it can produce very long chains of plants in the dark mud along lakes, ponds, and rivers. It, like all swords, prefers a nutritious substrate with iron supplements. It can be grown emersed and will bloom more readily if grown above water. these are sold as individual bare root plants
